    Empieza un poco como película de espías y al principio es interesante pero enseguida decae y se hace aburrido Mezcla realidad con ficción y el autor siempre es el bueno de la película sin asumir la responsabilidad de sus propias acciones mientras especulaba e hizo perder dinero a otros Un peñazo

    To be honest this is one of the best books Bill Browder is an amazing person and has made a great career while also wrote an amazing book telling his 'adventures' in Russia Really one of the BEST BOOKs I have ever read

    A fascinating account of the Eurasian landmass that was once a formidable superpower Today it is even mysterious and complicated The countries that came out of the USSR are following different paths and embracing new allies that would make them even dissimilar in the next generation So insightful books like Ukraine the West's Tug of war with Russia and Red Notice really come in handy to help us navigate this region

    This book can be read on several levelsFirst it flows like a well written political thriller but unfortunately it is fact not fiction That said if ever Bill Browder gets bored with asset management he would surely be able to make a living writing thrillers like this He's a natural He has the knack of reducing sometimes arcane and abstruse business language and legal procedures to an easily understandable narrativeSecondly his story is a timely warning to those who wish to workinvest in Russia It is clear that despite the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 old habits die hard Stalin's chief prosecutor is reputed to have said in the 1930s that he would consign the rule of law to the dustbin of history He did and that philosophy effectively still endures today Far from being independent of the Executive the judiciary and law enforcement agencies are its handmaidens The horrifying events surrounding the interrogation of the author's lawyer Sergei Magnitsky and his eventual death in custody testify to the scant regard that some of Russia's institutions have for due processMr Browder is a brave man perhaps to the point of recklessness; recklessly endangering his own lifeThirdly and importantly without wishing to belittle Sergey Magnitsky's barbaric treatment it is a contemporaneous record of what is happening on the front line to anybody who crosses the power elite in Russia; from illegal tax assessments and unlawful share dilutions to the employment of white noise jamming techniues in meetings not forgetting Litvinenko's polonium poisoning in the UK allegedly by the FSBMr Browder's experiences are just as seminal as the views of those who have spent their lives studying the topic from afar never having set foot on Russian soil There is no substitute for the harsh realities of practical experienceFurther being a writer myself on Russian affairs and culture both of fact and fiction I can empathise with his experiences I too lived and worked on the front line in the USSRRussia in the late 1980s90s – not as a business investor but as a lawyer trying to help bring some order to a disintegrating communist empire And again like the author I have met many Russian individuals whom I admire respect and love and who just want to live in harmony with the rest of us Russian government institutions on the other hand are as Churchill said of the USSR generally a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigmaThis book is a must read not only by those proposing to invest in Russia but also by anybody interested in international relations with the country which at the moment are testy to say the least If both East and West took time to try to understand the other side's position and not judge each other by their own standards I am sure that the relationship would be warmer despite the cultural differences

    Bill Prouder is a man to admire From humble beginnings he gained an excellent education and put it plus his determination and nouse to work achieving a world renownd financial empire without infringing his decent standardsHis expertise is in the privatisation of liberated eastern block companies Along the way he upsets some of the shady immensely wealthy oligarchs His young lawyer whom he totally trusts and believes in discovers a massive fraud against the Russian tax office perpetrated by high ranked Russian officials who in turn make the young man's life a living hell They imprison and torture him month after month denying him medical attention for an agonising condition in an attempt to have him retract his findings This brave young lawyer will not do so so they beat him to deathThe second half of the book concerns Bill Prouder's crusade to get justice for his friend's good name and family His fight involves the British and US government at the highest levels Republican Senator John McCain comes out of it as a hero while democrat senator Kerry is portrayed as a self obsesed disgrace On the other side the battle goes all the way up to Putin and what a piece of work he isIf this was a work of fiction one would think it OTT but it is a well documented truth opening one's eyes to the Russian greed cruelty in bread dishonesty and it must be noted stupidityBill Prouder to his own danger sticks to his task and is much to be admired I promise this is one you won't put down

    When I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be a wealthy hedge fund manager blowing smoke up his own back side I nearly stopped reading it I am so glad I didn't This is an extraordinary true story which highlights the large scale corruption in Russian business government justice system and security service It is as intense as any thriller I have ever read I don't want to say much as you simply have to read it to understand What I initially thought to be one man's ego trip resulted in my having absolute admiration for the courage and determination of Bill Prowder and his struggle for justice

    What's the Magnitsky act all about? Read it here Fascinating insights into US attitudes to the families of American communists even unto the nth generation likewise fascinating insights into the Maxwell empire post Soviet privatisation in Poland and Russia think taking candy from a baby corruption in Russia and the continuing existence of the 'deep state' personed by the same people as ever Ten even handedly the cynical self interest of the British government ditto certain individuals in the US Government eg Hillary Clinton'what's in it for me' with the notable exception of John McCain who is the only public figure to emerge from the book's pages with his shirt still on his back Finally the murky depths of his finance and the dodgy people who hold the commanding heights Capitalism as it really is red in tooth and claw but from a worm's eye view

    In essence this book is a limited span biography It tells the story of how Bill Browder the son of a brilliant mathematician and grandson of a USA Presidential candidate came to become a capitalist Not just any old capitalist though rather one of the most successful of his generation He spotted the investment potential in a newly capitalised Russia and persuaded high end financiers to provide him with millions of dollars His fund The heritage fund grew to have a value of billions of dollars while he and his backers became multi millionaires When the small number of oligarchs who controlled around 40% of Russia's assets began to notice him they decided to bring him down He alleges that Putin began to take notice and first reined in the oligarchs then came gunning for Browden The book exposes the levels of corruption and greed and violence which dominate modern Russia and further claims that Putin is a ruthless self seeking despot who will stop at nothing to retain complete power and control In this pusuit human life has no value One of Browden's lawyers is killed after being imprisoned on false charges and Browden sets out to clear his name and identify the culprits The only way of bringing them to any kind of justice is to put a clamp on their assets and prevent them from travelling outwith Russia After a herculean battle a bill is submitted to the US congress to achieve these ends Much of the book follows it's progressThe book is a compelling read made all the relevant since we are dealing with very recent historySome might argue that the book is nothing than the moaning of a greedy and very rich man who found his methods challenged and resented the besmirching of his name I think it is much For me it provided a uniue insight into Putin's Russia and is the story of a brave and determined man It is reuired reading for anyone planning to do business with Russia or indeed for those planning simply to visit that country
