Red Notice – High Finance and Treachery in Russia

As a new feature of Thinking Business Blog, I plan to publish a brief, one paragraph summary of the business books that I am reading. This will be a very high level synopsis of the book and what I gained from it. I will publish these summaries as I complete the books and not on a predetermined schedule. I trust you will benefit from them.

The first book I reviewed was Procrastinate on Purpose.

The second review is Bill Browder’s book, Red Notice

This is Browder’s amazing story of how he made billions of dollars as an early investor in Russia for his Hermitage Fund in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. Eventually, Putin and the oligarchs took notice and targeted him, his company and staff. The story switches gears from a documentary of Browder’s investment exploits to a documentary of Browder’s attempts to get justice for his Russian lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, who was illegally arrested and then beaten to death by guards while being detained in a Russian prison.
