One reason why Jim Rogers wrote book is this

It started because I had these kids. I've never had kids, so I started thinking of things that I want to make sure that I taught them, so I'd write them down. 

So next thing you knew, I had a magazine article or two, the next thing you know it became a book of things. I have had plenty of mistakes that I've made, I have made a few triumphs, and I wanted to teach them in a book. I like to teach them and I do teach them, but you know if you have a book, its something they can always pickup one day and look at and say "what did my father teach me about that", even whether I'm alive or not at that time. 

So its something they can always have it right there. The only way I know to make sure thats still around always and easily accessible is in a book.

Jim Rogers is a smart investor who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros in 1973. By 1983 the fund gained more than 4000 percent.
