Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Wandering Investor is a work of non-fiction focused on the business and financial sector, but also on global culture and society, and was written by author Brendan Hughes. As an investment advisor who has managed enormous portfolios and handled some of the most important decisions in the world of finance, Hughes delivers an exploration of his own process of finding out about different economies around the world. Whilst embedding himself into the culture and seeking thrills in these vibrant places, he also explores intricate and valuable details about the economy and the financial workings of each country from his expert point of view.

Author Brendan Hughes presents a truly thrilling work of non-fiction that feels like an action-packed travel novel, but one that also provides valuable information and resonant, relevant experience for others seeking to achieve success. I personally found the sections on lesser-known and less obvious places like Iceland and Peru to be the most intriguing, but every one of the seventeen countries featured has thrills to offer. The afterword chapters, which bring the whole work together, also really showcase the author’s confident approach to life and the poignant lessons which will surely inspire others to adopt the same approach. What results is an enjoyable and educational read for those aspiring to such lofty positions in the future from a man who’s already done it and done it to the max. Overall, I would highly recommend The Wandering Investor as a well-penned and accomplished work that is unique to all others in its field.
