I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to "Putin and his ban of US adoptions of Russian orphans back "and his ban of US adoptions of Russian orphans back 2012 but never really knew the detailsThe title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder his schooling and how he ended p in Russia The most fascinating part was discovering that Browder s grandfather was the lead This stunningly good book is authored by a world class trader who when he loses a friend to imprisonment torture and death from Putin s regime goes
ALL OUT SLOWLY DELIBERATELY TO AVENGEout slowly deliberately to avenge friend The trader is Bill Browder the friend is Sergei Magnitsky and the story is a true one This makes the book compelling than even the best fictional thriller Putin s lack of conscience is no act yet Browder describes a president and a now secretary of state who naively want to pursue a reset with this coldest of killersThe only thing and it is the most minor of points is that Browder calculates Gazprom s natural gas value on a basis euivalent to oil which it is notRed Notice is a story of brave men and women acting honorably in a shifting lawless country It provides phenomenal insight into current day Russia I wish Red Notice were a straightforward nonfiction account rather than the the first person memoir of Bill Browder that it is I found the story in the last half of the book compelling and heartbreaking and I wanted to go deeper into the lives and backgrounds of the other characters beyond Browder Magnitsky s family Vadim Vladimir Senator Cardin the Russian officials other Russian activists etc but was instead confined to this narrow view Along those lines I also wish the last half of the book was expanded to be the whole book The first half spends a lot of time describing Browder s early life and a lot of the events aren t incredibly necessary to get to the meat of the novel ie Browder s first marriage I just wasn t that interested in hearing all about Browder s rise to fame in the world of investment fund management My biggest issue in the novel was Browder s voice He can come off a bit holier than thou which is frustrating given his position among the wealthy and elite At times I had to roll my eyes at him because while he is a far cry from the corruption of these government officials he spent a fair amount of time indulging in the get rich ick atmosphere of post Soviet Russia himself *If he had gone farther to acknowle An interesting and entertaining read Only marred by the self righteous tone *he had gone farther to acknowle An interesting and entertaining read Only marred by the self righteous tone an author Browder can t see beyond his own perspective After cleaning out Russia by purchasing nderpriced stock and turning it around for a Put off thy shoes uick profit Once he achieved his millions he suddenly found a conscience My sympathy lies with the Russian activists and people who ve been wronged by both the oligarchs and the western businessman Born into a left wing family in America Bill Browder attended a boarding school where he becameite rebellious and very Range of Ghosts (Eternal Sky, unsettled Not happy with his home life he made the decision to become a capitalist knowing that it would surelypset his parents However once he settled down with his studies he was soon accepted into Standford University and on his way to becoming everything he ever wanted to be By becoming the largest fore.

G his friend and lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to the agents of the rogue state A well written gripping *Account I Could Not Put *I could not put down Now this is an explosive revealing and shocking read that had my complete attention from page one Bill Browder s account reads like a thriller but its non fiction and is compelling reading "FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN READING ABOUT HIGH FINANCE MURDER "anyone interested in reading about High Finance Murder one s fight for justice in modern Russia image November 2009 an emancipated young lawyer Sergei Magnitsky is led to a isolation cell in a Moscow prison handcuffed to a 3 12 stars I listened to the audio of Red Notice It was fascinating and I have no regrets about listening to it but there were a few things that grated on me enough to knock off a 12 star from what would otherwise have been a solid 4 stars In Red Notice Bill Browder recounts his involvement in the world of high finance in Russia events which The Brand New Monty Python Papperbok ultimately led to the arrest torture and death of one of his lawyers and which transformed Browder from manager of a multi billion dollar investment fund to a human rights activist Browder recounts this life journey in a lot of detail describing his own background and the worlds in which he found himself As a young graduate of the Stanford business school in the late 1980s he decided that he would enter into the newly available Russian investment market His strategy was to buy shares ofnder valued newly privatized companies and to make them available to foreign investors He made a tremendous amount of money for himself and for others and he also made many enemies in Russia because he made so much money and also had a tendency to sniff out and call attention to serious cases of corruption Ultimately this success and bullishness led to his expulsion from Russia and to the torture and death of his lawyer who refused to provide false evidence against Browder and his fund The Russia Browder depicts is corrupt and brutal and part of his point is that things are not very different from the days of communism I found all of this fascinating and chilling I also have a friend who does business in Russia who tells me that the world Browder describes is dead on What irked me about the book was Browder s nabashed self aggrandizement and lack of self reflection There is no recognition that there was nothing noble about going to Russia in the early 1990s to capitalize on its newly open market and that Browder s own troubles essentially come from his attempt to earn piles of money on the back of the Russians lack of experience in a free market The corrupt oligarchs and politicos in Russia have no higher moral ground to claim but all involved including Browder were motivated by some pretty over the top greed Again it s an interesting book and it reveals a very chilling side of contemporary Russia but I struggled to feel sympathy for Browder although I certainly felt a tremendous amount of sympathy for his lawyer and all who were physically threatened or exiled as a result of the events depicted in the book A note on the audio The narrator s voice is engaged and easy to listen to but it does come across as arrogant which may explain some of my reservation about the book The very last chapter is narrated by Browder himself and I found his own voice much sympathetic.
