Wondering what's happening out there in the capital markets? Trying to decide what you should do? Hey, are you just trying to understand what is going on and how you can keep your head down? Then I recommend that you read this new book by Dr. John Rutledge. Dr. Rutledge one of the architects of the greatest expansion in the history of the planet and if you read this you will understand more about economics than just about anyone else. You might even be tempted to get back in touch with your Econ professors.

First of all, the book is really fun to read. Let me restate that - it's fun to read. John Rutledge has a certain way about his writing that draws you in and you are sure to enjoy it. Your last Econ book is probably sitting on your floor being used as a door stop. This one will be by your nightstand. The reason you'll enjoy it is because Dr. Rutledge writes this book like, well, a writer, not an economist. For example, the chapter on budget deficits uses easy examples (Aunt Tilly) and simple pie charts to explain what they are all about. Another chapter is called Thermo-Economics and is based on some of Dr. Rutledge's theories on thermodynamics. Interesting, and you know, you'll "get it" after reading it.

One final reason to read this book is that I believe that it will make you money. You will finish the book with a much better understanding of capital, investments, and how to face these uncertain times. I found his first book Rust to Riches, published in the mid 80's, a few years ago, and it was really interesting to read with the hindsight of what has transpired since then. Guess what? Just about everything that Dr. Rutledge predicted happened did.

LESSONS FROM A ROAD WARRIOR is more than an insightful, profitable read: it is an important, timely book for our day.

Dr. John Rutledge is a really smart guy. He has advised Presidents (including the economic architects of the Reagan Revolution), consulted with governments and led businesses across the world. He sits at the tables of foreign leaders and industry captains who eagerly seek his counsel. He is one of the thoughtful, practical, insightful economists and business leaders of our generation.

I also love his heart for kids and the needy. Something special has touched Dr. Rutledge and he has a desire to give and make a difference in people's lives; especially desperate people in remote areas of the world.

Storm systems
Dr. Rutledge believes that capital markets can be understood using the laws and principles of physics; esp. thermodynamics. Volatility and market disruptions are akin to storms, changes in high and low pressure, and other powerful weather patterns. When certain markets are being adversely affected (oil, commodities, financials), it creates changes in capital flows, arbitrage opportunities and investor behavior which are understandable and predictable.

Investing
Like many other successful investors, Rutledge traces his investing disposition to Graham, the grandfather of value investors. This school of thought says, in short, investors want to own assets which create cash. Value investors want to own companies who produce cash (dividends) now. Growth investors are willing to wait. Value investors are from Missouri. John Rutledge is a value investor with a global perspective.

He recommends large, U.S. companies which are profitable. He also mentions small sector allocations; particularly in China.

Dr Rutledge is a combination of "Renaisance Man" and Will Rogers. By use of personal experiences he skillfully, and often times humorously, provides a useful explanation of past economic and financial market events. More importantly, his sensible and well reasoned hypothesis surrounding the connection between the principles of thermodynamics and financial market behavior provides a rational approach as to how investors can navigate current and prospective finacial tidal waves. A must read.

I work with John each weekend on Fox Business and often throughout the week on other television hits on various networks and have seen him bring this material into real life work affecting others. I read the book long before we worked together - it created a contagious enthusiasm for understanding the unique role that science can play in economics.

Having taught econ for years at the bachelors, masters and doctoral level, I use some of the analogies in this book in my courses and have made it recommended and required reading at various institutions.

Lessons brings a unique marketplace perspective that will help you, the reader, understand how the markets work not from a textbook perspective (aka boring), but from one you will get -- and dare I say -- actually enjoy reading.

You will learn more than econ.. you will learn lessons about life from someone who knows how to live it. I have seen how this work impacts others on our weekend show where we help entrepreneurs understand what is happening in their own business, the markets and the economy. John always brings the well traveled, thought-out unique, direct perspective onto the show and he does it not to a greater degree in this book, but in a different way. A wonderfully complementary way -- if you have seen our show or his other hits on Fox, CNBC etc, you NEED THIS BOOK.

Even if you aren't into Econ, you are missing out by not reading this. John is the real deal - a nice change in today's environment.
