Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man's Fight for Justice Reviews

    Born into a left-wing family in America, Bill Browder attended a boarding school where he became quite rebellious and very unsettled. Not happy with his home life he made the decision to become a capitalist knowing that it would surely upset his parents. However, once he settled down w...

    3 1/2 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 1/2 star from what would otherwise have been a solid 4 stars. In Red Notice, Bill Browder recounts his...

    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 and one man's fight for justice i...

    An interesting and entertaining read. Only marred by the self righteous tone of an author. Browder can't see beyond his own perspective. After cleaning out Russia by purchasing underpriced stock and turning it around for a quick profit. Once he achieved his millions he suddenly found a...

    An excellent true account of the author's ups and downs as an investor in Putin's Russia. Along the way, he encounters brazen acts of embezzlement, theft and even murder by this lawless kleptocracy, losing his friend and lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to the agents of the 'rogue' state. A wel...

    The main lesson of this volume is the documentation of how far Russia has slid into kleptocracy, where the rule of law had become only a tool used to extort, to destroy, and to consolidate the gains of a select few. To recap - Russia around 1995-1996 was at a low ebb. President Yel...

    I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to Putin and his ban of U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans back in 2012 but never really knew the details. The title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder, his schoolin...

    This book was a complete surprise to me. I thought that perhaps it would be dry, or more likely over my head because I know so little about the world of finance. Fortunately, my fears proved unfounded; the book was very approachable and entertaining. There are two parts to the auth...

    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 avenge his friend. The trader is Bill Browder, the friend is Sergei Magnitsky, and the story is a tr...

    Bill Browder has a fascinating tale to tell, of his family background as the grandson of a noted Communist, of his math-whiz father and mother, of his physicist brother. He was the black sheep of the family?until he became a billionaire in his thirties by investing in undervalued Rus...

    It?s 2017 and we all are looking forward to seeing how ?the art of the deal? as practiced by our new president works out. How often will it be involving his friend in Russia? What better time to read Bill Browder?s page turner about his years deal-making in Russia and how he ba...

    I don't have time to review this book properly. In a nutshell, I was fascinated by the first half of it - all about the author learning to become a hedge fund manager, and his experiences in Russia and the highs and the lows of that experience. These included him getting immensely tang...

    Bill Browder, relatively early in his career, moves to Russia, to run a hedge fund investing mostly in recently "privatised" (in quote marks for a reason, as there isn't much similarity with our western understanding of that process) state industries. I'll be totally honest and say ...

    Red Notice is one of the best nonfiction books I?ve read in a long time. I could not put it down. It is fast paced, riveting, suspenseful, and a powerful indictment of the authoritarian regime that is in power today in Russia. And it is also an autobiography. Bill Browder writes a...

    OUTRAGEOUSLY COMPELLING!!!! If Bill Browder's expose isn't on your to read list, it should be. Whether or not you're business savvy - or globally astute, a non-fiction enthusiast, culturally aware, or a political aficionado - is rather a moot point; if you believe in impartial justi...

    3 stars - It was good. A fascinating story that starts off as a tale of financial corruption and ends with a cry for human rights. You are left questioning the illusion that Russia is becoming a progressive and democratic nation. Browder's story also shines an unflattering light...

    Hard book to read! Bill Browder is the ultimate intrepid person. There are more details in his mind within an hour- then most people seem to use within a month. No, more than 2 months. And you hear them all here. For years, and years of travel, inquiry, investing, association for knowl...

    In the past 24 hours I?ve read a must read. Bill Browder?s Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man?s Fight for Justice is one of the best books I?ve read this year. It reads like a John le Carré novel, except it is non-fiction. It starts out as the autobi...

    Rarely has a book gripped me like this. I didn't want to do anything else but read it. It is utterly mesmerizing. I loved it, even though I'm not great at understanding financial concepts (the stock market is a totally foreign place to me), but Browder does a good job of explaining thi...

    The content is important, since not all might be aware of what a lawless country Russia truly is. However, the author failed to engage me and I spent most of the book wishing it was over. The core message: don't do business in Russia and don't oppose the state or it will end badly for ...

    I wish "Red Notice" were a more 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 char...

    Russian corruption from a financial and personal view There is a great story in here. Clearly, Mr. Browder has encountered the financial highs and corruption lows of Russia as the country emerged from communism to the capitalist dream of privatization and dropped into the abyss of a...

    True story of the first investor in grossly undervalued Russian companies, who makes enormous returns for himself and his partners, but antagonized Russian oligarchs without much thought about the risks to himself, his family, his employees and agents. Then, the unthinkable happens, an...

    Born into a left-wing family in America, Bill Browder attended a boarding school where he became quite rebellious and very unsettled. Not happy with his home life he made the decision to become a capitalist knowing that it would surely upset his parents. However, once he settled down w...

    3 1/2 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 1/2 star from what would otherwise have been a solid 4 stars. In Red Notice, Bill Browder recounts his...

    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 and one man's fight for justice i...

    An interesting and entertaining read. Only marred by the self righteous tone of an author. Browder can't see beyond his own perspective. After cleaning out Russia by purchasing underpriced stock and turning it around for a quick profit. Once he achieved his millions he suddenly found a...

    An excellent true account of the author's ups and downs as an investor in Putin's Russia. Along the way, he encounters brazen acts of embezzlement, theft and even murder by this lawless kleptocracy, losing his friend and lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to the agents of the 'rogue' state. A wel...

    The main lesson of this volume is the documentation of how far Russia has slid into kleptocracy, where the rule of law had become only a tool used to extort, to destroy, and to consolidate the gains of a select few. To recap - Russia around 1995-1996 was at a low ebb. President Yel...

    I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to Putin and his ban of U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans back in 2012 but never really knew the details. The title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder, his schoolin...

    This book was a complete surprise to me. I thought that perhaps it would be dry, or more likely over my head because I know so little about the world of finance. Fortunately, my fears proved unfounded; the book was very approachable and entertaining. There are two parts to the auth...

    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 avenge his friend. The trader is Bill Browder, the friend is Sergei Magnitsky, and the story is a tr...

    Bill Browder has a fascinating tale to tell, of his family background as the grandson of a noted Communist, of his math-whiz father and mother, of his physicist brother. He was the black sheep of the family?until he became a billionaire in his thirties by investing in undervalued Rus...

    It?s 2017 and we all are looking forward to seeing how ?the art of the deal? as practiced by our new president works out. How often will it be involving his friend in Russia? What better time to read Bill Browder?s page turner about his years deal-making in Russia and how he ba...

    I don't have time to review this book properly. In a nutshell, I was fascinated by the first half of it - all about the author learning to become a hedge fund manager, and his experiences in Russia and the highs and the lows of that experience. These included him getting immensely tang...

    Bill Browder, relatively early in his career, moves to Russia, to run a hedge fund investing mostly in recently "privatised" (in quote marks for a reason, as there isn't much similarity with our western understanding of that process) state industries. I'll be totally honest and say ...

    Red Notice is one of the best nonfiction books I?ve read in a long time. I could not put it down. It is fast paced, riveting, suspenseful, and a powerful indictment of the authoritarian regime that is in power today in Russia. And it is also an autobiography. Bill Browder writes a...

    OUTRAGEOUSLY COMPELLING!!!! If Bill Browder's expose isn't on your to read list, it should be. Whether or not you're business savvy - or globally astute, a non-fiction enthusiast, culturally aware, or a political aficionado - is rather a moot point; if you believe in impartial justi...

    3 stars - It was good. A fascinating story that starts off as a tale of financial corruption and ends with a cry for human rights. You are left questioning the illusion that Russia is becoming a progressive and democratic nation. Browder's story also shines an unflattering light...

    Hard book to read! Bill Browder is the ultimate intrepid person. There are more details in his mind within an hour- then most people seem to use within a month. No, more than 2 months. And you hear them all here. For years, and years of travel, inquiry, investing, association for knowl...

    In the past 24 hours I?ve read a must read. Bill Browder?s Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man?s Fight for Justice is one of the best books I?ve read this year. It reads like a John le Carré novel, except it is non-fiction. It starts out as the autobi...

    Rarely has a book gripped me like this. I didn't want to do anything else but read it. It is utterly mesmerizing. I loved it, even though I'm not great at understanding financial concepts (the stock market is a totally foreign place to me), but Browder does a good job of explaining thi...

    The content is important, since not all might be aware of what a lawless country Russia truly is. However, the author failed to engage me and I spent most of the book wishing it was over. The core message: don't do business in Russia and don't oppose the state or it will end badly for ...

    I wish "Red Notice" were a more 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 char...

    Russian corruption from a financial and personal view There is a great story in here. Clearly, Mr. Browder has encountered the financial highs and corruption lows of Russia as the country emerged from communism to the capitalist dream of privatization and dropped into the abyss of a...

    ?Red Notice? is author Bill Browder?s engrossing memoir about his amazing career as an investor in Russia. Recall the iron curtain came down in the early 1990?s making Eastern Europe an unexplored financial mecca for investors. Browder decided to gamble his financial life by fi...

    A red notice is an alert issued by Interpol that notifies countries that the person named is wanted by a member country. Most countries honor the red notices, so it is almost like a warrant to extradite. Bill Browder, a manager of a hedge fund that was based in Russia, found himself fi...

    This passage should sum it up pretty neatly: "This is Russia today. A stuffy room presided over by a corrupt judge, policed by unthinking guards, with lawyers who are there just to give the appearance of a real trial, and with no defendant in the cage. A place where lies reign supreme....

    Red Notice is one of the best nonfiction books I?ve read in a long time. I could not put it down. It is fast paced, riveting, suspenseful, and a powerful indictment of the authoritarian regime that is in power today in Russia. And it is also an autobiography. Bill Browder writes a...

    Born into a left-wing family in America, Bill Browder attended a boarding school where he became quite rebellious and very unsettled. Not happy with his home life he made the decision to become a capitalist knowing that it would surely upset his parents. However, once he settled down w...

    3 1/2 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 1/2 star from what would otherwise have been a solid 4 stars. In Red Notice, Bill Browder recounts his...

    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 and one man's fight for justice i...

    An interesting and entertaining read. Only marred by the self righteous tone of an author. Browder can't see beyond his own perspective. After cleaning out Russia by purchasing underpriced stock and turning it around for a quick profit. Once he achieved his millions he suddenly found a...

    An excellent true account of the author's ups and downs as an investor in Putin's Russia. Along the way, he encounters brazen acts of embezzlement, theft and even murder by this lawless kleptocracy, losing his friend and lawyer Sergei Magnitsky to the agents of the 'rogue' state. A wel...

    The main lesson of this volume is the documentation of how far Russia has slid into kleptocracy, where the rule of law had become only a tool used to extort, to destroy, and to consolidate the gains of a select few. To recap - Russia around 1995-1996 was at a low ebb. President Yel...

    I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to Putin and his ban of U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans back in 2012 but never really knew the details. The title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder, his schoolin...

    This book was a complete surprise to me. I thought that perhaps it would be dry, or more likely over my head because I know so little about the world of finance. Fortunately, my fears proved unfounded; the book was very approachable and entertaining. There are two parts to the auth...

    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 avenge his friend. The trader is Bill Browder, the friend is Sergei Magnitsky, and the story is a tr...

    Rarely has a book gripped me like this. I didn't want to do anything else but read it. It is utterly mesmerizing. I loved it, even though I'm not great at understanding financial concepts (the stock market is a totally foreign place to me), but Browder does a good job of explaining thi...

    The content is important, since not all might be aware of what a lawless country Russia truly is. However, the author failed to engage me and I spent most of the book wishing it was over. The core message: don't do business in Russia and don't oppose the state or it will end badly for ...

    The main lesson of this volume is the documentation of how far Russia has slid into kleptocracy, where the rule of law had become only a tool used to extort, to destroy, and to consolidate the gains of a select few. To recap - Russia around 1995-1996 was at a low ebb. President Yel...

    I was vaguely aware of this story as it related to Putin and his ban of U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans back in 2012 but never really knew the details. The title does a very good job of breaking down the arc of the book with the first section concentrating on Browder, his schoolin...

    This book was a complete surprise to me. I thought that perhaps it would be dry, or more likely over my head because I know so little about the world of finance. Fortunately, my fears proved unfounded; the book was very approachable and entertaining. There are two parts to the auth...

    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 avenge his friend. The trader is Bill Browder, the friend is Sergei Magnitsky, and the story is a tr...

    Bill Browder has a fascinating tale to tell, of his family background as the grandson of a noted Communist, of his math-whiz father and mother, of his physicist brother. He was the black sheep of the family?until he became a billionaire in his thirties by investing in undervalued Rus...

    It?s 2017 and we all are looking forward to seeing how ?the art of the deal? as practiced by our new president works out. How often will it be involving his friend in Russia? What better time to read Bill Browder?s page turner about his years deal-making in Russia and how he ba...

    Bill Browder, relatively early in his career, moves to Russia, to run a hedge fund investing mostly in recently "privatised" (in quote marks for a reason, as there isn't much similarity with our western understanding of that process) state industries. I'll be totally honest and say ...

    Red Notice is one of the best nonfiction books I?ve read in a long time. I could not put it down. It is fast paced, riveting, suspenseful, and a powerful indictment of the authoritarian regime that is in power today in Russia. And it is also an autobiography. Bill Browder writes a...

    OUTRAGEOUSLY COMPELLING!!!! If Bill Browder's expose isn't on your to read list, it should be. Whether or not you're business savvy - or globally astute, a non-fiction enthusiast, culturally aware, or a political aficionado - is rather a moot point; if you believe in impartial justi...

    Hard book to read! Bill Browder is the ultimate intrepid person. There are more details in his mind within an hour- then most people seem to use within a month. No, more than 2 months. And you hear them all here. For years, and years of travel, inquiry, investing, association for knowl...

    In the past 24 hours I?ve read a must read. Bill Browder?s Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man?s Fight for Justice is one of the best books I?ve read this year. It reads like a John le Carré novel, except it is non-fiction. It starts out as the autobi...

    The content is important, since not all might be aware of what a lawless country Russia truly is. However, the author failed to engage me and I spent most of the book wishing it was over. The core message: don't do business in Russia and don't oppose the state or it will end badly for ...

    ?Red Notice? is author Bill Browder?s engrossing memoir about his amazing career as an investor in Russia. Recall the iron curtain came down in the early 1990?s making Eastern Europe an unexplored financial mecca for investors. Browder decided to gamble his financial life by fi...

    A red notice is an alert issued by Interpol that notifies countries that the person named is wanted by a member country. Most countries honor the red notices, so it is almost like a warrant to extradite. Bill Browder, a manager of a hedge fund that was based in Russia, found himself fi...

    This passage should sum it up pretty neatly: "This is Russia today. A stuffy room presided over by a corrupt judge, policed by unthinking guards, with lawyers who are there just to give the appearance of a real trial, and with no defendant in the cage. A place where lies reign supreme....
