Red Notice by Bill Browder Book Summary

Freezing Order, the follow-up to Red Notice, is available now! “[Red Notice] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar’s Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder’s business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year’s best books” (Fortune).

“Part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.” —The New York Times

This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune.

Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin’s number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States—The Magnitsky Act—that punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer’s murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans.

A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.

Red Notice (Bill Browder) Book Reviews

A must read : What a turn to Justice.An autopsy of paramilitary state and corruption..Score: 5/5

Crazy, unbelievable!If just half of the story is true, the Russians are some of the worst people on the planet!.Score: 5/5

Incredible book!An incredible amazing true story that brought tears to my eyes for both the horrible things that happened by a few but mostly for the good, the honest and bravery by many to do the right thing. It helped reassure me that there are still many more good people in the world than bad people. Bill Browder is an incredible storyteller and it was a hard book to put down. In reading this book I found myself thinking "This story is so compelling that you could not make it up even if you wanted to.".Score: 5/5

Red noticeThis was a deeply moving account , very well written of a hugely tragic story of murder and cover up and deep injustice perpetrated by a Government and its officials, many of whom are still in office . I admire all those people for their honesty , bravery and courage to get this story out and achieve such remarkable success in telling the story and helping to do something to combat the lies , corruption and deceit of this rotten regime . Many I’m sure in Russia today live their lives in fear of this murderous dictator ..Score: 5/5

Mr. BrowderI am from another line in your family. I spent time in Russia 1994-96 and traveled back and forth until 9-11. Your description of Russia and of its soul is so perfectly depicted. Your story so straight forward is beautifully crafted. Once shielding my Browder name with its Communist heritage from peers, through your honor in juxtaposition I am now so proud to own it. Thank you for your courage, right action and your love of humanity. Thank you for this book!.Score: 5/5

Did not enjoyThis book had so much potential but the writer could not bring it. Also the write up of the book made it sound more intriguing. It really didn't get interesting until half way through. There was such wasted time on the level of detail and I think it didn't add to the story. Why do I care if they had coffee at a certain time, why do I care that his suit was cashmere, why do I care about all the cab rides or his smooth leather loafers. Finishing this book is torture..Score: 1/5

WowWhat an eye opener.Score: 5/5

Where do we go from here?This book just enlightens all societies that corruption, power and greed trumps integrity truth and justice pretty much every time and hardly any government will step in to help. It is rarely about human rights; it is all about strategy. Will exposing the truth or covering up be more beneficial economically, politically and for what side? Countries like England, United States and Canada did not act quickly enough to save this Russian tax lawyer or others because they have plenty of examples of the abuse of power in their own backyards. Injustice is everywhere and if you become a target, you are fighting a very uneven battle. This book shows the reality of how governments operate and the dehumanizing side of what it actually cost to obtain any form of validation and the price is extremely high. It takes years. Considering how well known this investor was with all his connections and what he went through, you can't help but think of an unknown person's chances of success under the same circumstances. I am an unknown person and I am deeply fearful. The odds are greatly stacked against us..Score: 5/5

Red NoticeThis incredible tale of what happened to hedge fund manager Bill Browder during the last decade had me on the edge of my seat. It clearly outlines what happens if you "poke the bear" a.k.a. Russia, and how utterly ruthless, immoral and scandalous top officials in the political sphere and the justice system there can be. Mr. Browder has produced a gem with Red Notice, and in its wake brought the quest for human rights violations to be quelled, maybe even light years ahead. There is obviously much work to be done, but this book certainly has opened a lot of people's eyes. I know it has opened mine. I recommend this book 100%-it was very hard to put down..Score: 5/5
