Just read some brutal commentary about Jim Rogers on the Amazon page for his new book. For what it's worth, the critic seems pretty angry at Rogers, or perhaps himself, but he did bring up some good points. I don't think we would ever see Soros as a regular on a morning stock-picking show. Is Rogers a fraud? Here is the review: "Who says that intelligence is equated with market success? Rogers was a junior partner of George Soros close to 27 years ago. At that time, soros managed a relatively small amount of funds versus what he has accumulated in the past 2 decades. Rogers has been living off of this assumed reputation since then. What did he leave with--$15 million? That pales when measured against the trading legends. Rogers has fared better marketing himself rather than the bottom line success of market performance. I dare say he lives off of his book revenues. I would not be surprised to learn that the extent of his profits is no larger than that pretentious bow tie that he chooses to wear. I would be surprised that he could even find a helmet to wear to cover his oversized head when he drives that psuedo motorcycle he claims he drove around the world. Give this fool a 'D' grade for marketing and a resounding 'F' for true trading performance."
