Born on October 19, 1942, Jim Rogers had his first job at age five, picking up bottles at baseball games. After growing up in Demopolis, Alabama, he won a scholarship to Yale. Upon graduation, he attended Balliol College at Oxford where he earned his first Guinness record as coxswain of the crew. After a stint in the army, he began work on Wall Street. He co-founded the Quantum Fund, a global investment partnership. During the 1970s, the portfolio gained 4,200 percent, while the S&P rose less than 47 percent. Rogers then decided to retire—at age thirty-seven—but he did not remain idle.

Continuing to manage his own portfolio, Rogers served as a professor of finance at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and as moderator of The Dreyfus Roundtable on WCBS and The Profit Motive on FNN. At the same time, he laid the groundwork for his lifelong dream, an around-the-world motorcycle trip: more than 100,000 miles across six continents, his second Guinness record. That journey became the subject of Rogers’s first book, Investment Biker (1994).

Rogers’s Millennium Adventure 1999–2001, his third Guinness record, took him and his wife through 116 countries, through half of the world’s 30 civil wars, and over 152,000 miles. His second book, Adventure Capitalist, chronicled that incredible journey.

Now a contributor to Fox News and other news and print outlets, he has recently moved to Asia with his wife and daughter.
