    1 thought on “Speculator”

    1. Best book I've read in a long time. Think Ayn Rand. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Supposed to be 5.

    2. The best book I've read since Shantaram!!If you're looking for a book that's written for common sense and adventure, you've found it in this authors work.

    3. 23 Oct. 2017Hard to put this one down. Quite riveting.Huge excitement, good-guys vs. bad-guys in ways you may never have considered, love and lust interests, financial shenanigans, technology for good and evil, and ideas, lots and lots of ideas that will challenge what you probably have been taught to think is wrong, but may have a suspicion is actually right and vice versa.I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for anyone who loves a great story and isn't afraid to deal with difficult mora [...]

    4. Oh, what a ride! First, if you like adventure, this is a great book to read. Good, bad, and gray areas are covered in this book. Now, if you know Doug Casey, or if you are a speculator yourself, this book has added meaning.On a podcast a few years back, Casey implied, "The first novel is almost a biography." If you read this book, you'll see a lot of Doug Casey in Charles Knight's character. His philosophies, skill set, and way of thinking are clearly visible.There is another benefit of this boo [...]

    5. Excellent fiction in the tradition somewhere between Ian Fleming and Ayn Rand. Casey is himself a Speculator, unapologetic Anarcho-Capitalist, one time Discordian and and devoted advocate of Aleister Crowley's law of Do What Thou wilt. The story is an exciting adventure in Africa with heroic Capitalists, compassionate Healthcare Providers, and wicked IRS agents. There's romance, intrigue, and eventually a revolution. It reads like a rollicking good time but along the way Casey also manages to im [...]

    6. Great read - wonderful political commentaryInsightful perspective on expanding, encroaching government, and how characters have to navigate issues of privacy and corporate avoidance of ethics and rule of law.

    7. If Ayn Rand and Robert Ludlum had a book baby and it went to the Austrian School of economics, this would be it. Without revealing any spoilers, Casey uses the story of speculation in African gold mining to teach about economics, stock trading (one of the better explanations of shorting and putting stocks), and the way in which government constrains economic activities. The author doesn't quite go whole hog objectivist in the book but is definitely toeing a libertarian view of the world, which m [...]

    8. A "thriller" novel with an incredibly thoroughly telegraphed plot, preachy 1-3 paragraph parenthetical preaching about various libertarian economic or philosophical points, and 2 dimensional characters. So, basically not thrilling at all. In theory I should like this (conflict, financial crimes, etc.), but in reality it's just not very good.

    9. Brilliant Mr. CaseyIt’s taken me awhile to get to the first book in Doug Casey’s series, but I’m excited to catch up ow. Excellent read.

    10. Great book in the vein of a Bond novel mixed with The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch, 50 Shades of Gray, Atlas Shrugged, the Matthew McConaughey movie "Gold", and Indiana Jones.

    11. I wanted to like this book, and although I agree with the views of the author for the most part, I did not really like Speculator. Heard about the book on the Frank Curzio Wall Street Unplugged podcast and the whole series sounded good. The plot was fine, but the writing was inadequate. He left out too many details and the writing was too hard to follow at times. I know details can make the book much longer, but they also help me understand what is happening. I finished the novel with the impres [...]

    12. AlarmA little preachy in parts, but of course Mr Casey isn't wrong. I'm just letting the reader know there is " an agenda" in an after school special sort of way. Of course Doug Casey is an excellent writer and it is immediately obvious that experience and first hand knowledge were incorporated into the narrative.
