  1. This is a bit freaky… I just was listening to Free Capital on audible over the weekend… and the story of Luke was one of about 6 I listened to. Have listened to it once already this year and thought I’d listen to it again as I had 8 hours of driving to get through the book.

    I really liked the stories, especially of Lord Lee, SuChil (sp?), and Luke too. I wish there were more biographical type books like this which look at investors in the UK, rather than the US.

    One other book in a similar vein I read recently was “Go: An Airline Adventure” by Barbara Cassani. I found it really interesting to see how they built the airline from the ground up over a few years and ended up making a huge profit when they got bought out by easyJet.

    That is a coincidence. I’m afraid I’ve forgotten most of the chapters as it’s about a year since I read the book, but I’ll be working my way through them all again.

    I agree with you about the lack of UK investor profiles. I’ve come up with a list of 7 books like this, but the other six are American. That seems to be the way with investing – 80% to 90% of the material is US-focused.

    Still, there’s usually something of interest with a US investor if they are good enough.
