Street Smarts is a new book out by the South Alabama bowtie man. There is an interesting video discussion here on being humbled by the market.
2. A bit about his new book follows: Street Smarts by Jim Rogers
and an excerpt:
‘Today, I wish I knew how to instill this characteristic in my children. I wish I could call my father or mother and say, “What pill did you give us?” Call it discipline, call it diligence, call it work ethic—we all have it, my brothers and I. I do not know where it comes from. I wish I could find the gene. I am certainly not alone in recognizing the value of persistence—we all know smart people who are not successful; we all know talented people who are not successful. Persistence is what makes the difference.’
