Almost all chief executives claim to read avidly, but not many are able to say they are a book reviewer on the side.
John Slosar tries to read as much as he can when he travels and reviews some of the literature he digests for the exclusive Hong Kong Club.
He says he writes about 350 words on the more interesting books and has had five reviews published so far this year.
The last book he reviewed was William Bernstein’s A Splendid Exchange, which chronicles the history of world trade.
“It is everything you wanted to know about trade but were afraid to ask, in fabulous detail. I learnt a huge amount from it and gave it a very good review.
”Slosar hardly has time for fiction, however, and says with a laugh: “It is normally non-fiction because truth is always stranger than fiction anyway.”
