|There are only a handful of great collections of personal thoughts, opinions and conclusions based on the author's rich experience of the world. This one, the harvest of a large life in dozens of countries and situations, has been accepted as one of the unique accumulations of wisdom and experience in recent centuries. It stands in the company of the Maxims of la Rochefoucauld and Eric Hoffer's The True Believer.|
The author draws his observations from his many careers: as an advisor to Latin American trade unions, as a New York stock market wizard (according to Louis Rukeyser of Wall Street Week), a creator of dozens of companies in many countries. He is also a prolific writer. Train has lived for years in Italy, where he married a Florentine, and in Paris, where he was a founder of the Paris Review, ran a wine chateau, and created a highly successful finance company. In London, he was a director of a merchant bank and several very large emerging market mutual funds. The lessons of all these experiences are distilled in this book.
John Train has enjoyed a remarkable life. A writer, investment manager, and government official, he has worked in every country in South America and Europe, and many in Asia and Africa. He has been appointed by two Republican and two Democratic Presidents. His 25 books and 500 columns cover such subjects as investments, Oriental rug symbols, international and military affairs, wit and love.
