  • Lessons from a Road Warrior

How I fell off a horse, earned 15 million air miles, got sand in my shoes and learned how to invest.

For 35 years, Dr. John Rutledge has traveled the world advising governments, corporations, pension funds and individual investors on how to create, grow and manage wealth.

In Lessons from a Road Warrior, Dr. Rutledge traces the development of his ideas from his boyhood lessons in Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, to his easy-to-understand thermo-economics framework for investing that shapes the way he sees the world today. He uses this thermodynamics-based framework to help the reader understand the important economic, financial and political forces that shape our lives and determine the value of our homes and stock portfolios.
