    Born into a left-wing family in America, Bill Browder attended a boarding school where he became quite rebellious and very unsettled. Not happy with his home life he made the decision to become a capitalist knowing that it would surely upset his parents. However, once he settled down w...

    3 1/2 stars. I listened to the audio of Red Notice. It was fascinating and I have no regrets about listening to it, but there were a few things that grated on me enough to knock off a 1/2 star from what would otherwise have been a solid 4 stars. In Red Notice, Bill Browder recounts his...

    An interesting and entertaining read. Only marred by the self righteous tone of an author. Browder can't see beyond his own perspective. After cleaning out Russia by purchasing underpriced stock and turning it around for a quick profit. Once he achieved his millions he suddenly found a...

    This stunningly good book is authored by a world-class trader who, when he loses a friend to imprisonment, torture, and death from Putin's regime, goes all-out--slowly, deliberately--to avenge his friend. The trader is Bill Browder, the friend is Sergei Magnitsky, and the story is a tr...

    The main lesson of this volume is the documentation of how far Russia has slid into kleptocracy, where the rule of law had become only a tool used to extort, to destroy, and to consolidate the gains of a select few. To recap - Russia around 1995-1996 was at a low ebb. President Yel...

    I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to Putin and his ban of U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans back in 2012 but never really knew the details. The title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder, his schoolin...

    Bill Browder has a fascinating tale to tell, of his family background as the grandson of a noted Communist, of his math-whiz father and mother, of his physicist brother. He was the black sheep of the family?until he became a billionaire in his thirties by investing in undervalued Rus...

    It?s 2017 and we all are looking forward to seeing how ?the art of the deal? as practiced by our new president works out. How often will it be involving his friend in Russia? What better time to read Bill Browder?s page turner about his years deal-making in Russia and how he ba...
