This book is actually a very fascinating read. As far as being motivational or educational, it's neither of those. However, it is a detailed look into the mind of a very interesting person; namely, Roy "Cap" Philipose.

The best way I can describe Mr. Philipose is a nonfictional combination of Holden Caulfield and Ignatius J. Reilly. The book is completely devoid of any organization or focus (although it is separated into chapters at apparently random intervals) and is written in a stream-of-consciousness narrative style. This is what makes the book so entertaining; the fact that you are allowed to look around inside Mr. Philipose's brain for awhile and see his thoughts as they are happening.

As for the content of the book, there is really nothing of substance to be found. It's clear that the author's understanding of finance, economics, and business is rudimentary at best. Ironically, although he proclaims to be a capitalist (or at least to become one in the future; whatever that means), it felt more like something that would be written by Guevara or Marx. According to this book, success should not be determined by one's merit, but by one's desires and it is the "Middle Classians" (analogous to bourgeois as used in this book) that are holding one back.

This is a book that claims to be an instruction manual on how to be successful, but is written by someone who has not achieved meaningful success (at least not per the book's definition of success). He expects the reader (as well as potential employers, family, friends, bill collectors, etc.) to recognize his imagined future success and currently give him the respect that such success would deserve if it were real. He imagines himself to be a teacher while simultaneously being uninterested in learning.

The first time I read this book it seemed like it was written by someone with an imaginary bachelors degree. Then I gave this book a second look...a FULL second look. I realized it was written by a level 2 stage... super genius. The concepts in the book might go over your head on first reading, and maybe again on the second reading, but in my opinion the concepts are just too hard for anyone below a level 2 stage super genius to grasp. If reading this book gives you even a glimpse into the mind of Roy "Cap" Philipose, it's worth it's weight in gold. 5 stars.

Roy Philipose is probably the foremost economist of our time. This excellently written work conveys his wisdom to the masses and allows any one to achieve the same success he has. This book is the pinnacle of modern economics and will continue to be read by generations of pre-capitalists (similar to pre-med or pre-law). Definitely would recommend this book for those wishing to understand modern economics without a strong bacground in pre-calculus.
