'The Road to $5,000 Gold' now listed on

 My new book 'Dubai Sabbatical: The Road to $5,000 Gold' is now listed on and is available exclusively online. 

This work tells the story of the travels around the world that followed my successful dot-com sale in 2007 and how this experience reinforced my conviction that gold is the best investment class to hold. 

You can meet the Treasurer of the Perth Mint with the author as he opens an account, consider in detail the arguments for much higher gold prices and reach your own conclusion as to whether the author is right or just another gold bug.

At the same time you are taken on a journey around the globe that anybody with modest resources could undertake as a once in a lifetime sabbatical holiday. 

Considering a career break or hoping to make an investment break, this book offers some answers to both.
