We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Red Notice from the world's leading experts.

Eric Ries Founder/Long-Term Stock ExchangeThis reads like a thriller, but is an urgent and important story about the dangers of Putin’s Russia and the events leading to the Magnitsky Act. (Source)

Jonathan Kay Am reading @Billbrowder's amazing book Red Notice. Did not know incredible story of Bill's dad, who got his @Princeton math PhD at age 20. Like many Jews of era, suffered massive discrimination, stigmatized because of his own dad's communism. Then Eleanor Roosevelt saves the day (Source)

Anand Sanwal @geoffreysbatt @patrick_oshag 2/ Reminded a bit of the story of @Billbrowder as told in the remarkable book Red Notice which chronicles his investments in Russia very early before everyone saw the opportunity (Source)

Ryan Graves Just finished Red Notice by @Billbrowder ... what starts as an epic business/investing book becomes an legendary international crime saga, then turns into a lesson in justice, activism & purpose. Highly recommended reading! Thx for sharing your story, would love to meet sometime. (Source)

Sean Lowe @Benaskren Red Notice by Bill Browder. Best book I’ve read in years. (Source)

Stefan Lessard Insane. I read the book Red Notice by @Billbrowder in 2015 It’s amazing how anybody would vote against the Magnitsky Act. I wish more people would read this story and see why any sympathy or love shown (cough cough Trump) towards Putin is in our worst interest as a Nation. (Source)

Jeremy Gardner I’ll never pump a coin, but I’ll always promote good writers. It was great catching up with @mikejcasey and hearing about “The Truth Machine,” his new book with @paulvigna. It’s sure to be full of insights on the most revolutionary technology since the internet! (Source)

Ben Saunders Just finished @Billbrowder's extraordinary book Red Notice. Inspiring, alarming, unsettling and illuminating in equal measure. I thought I knew a few things about ambition and endeavour in challenging environments, but this is something else. Highly recommended. (Source)

Mike Dudas Red Notice is my single favorite book that I've read in the past 5 years. The lessons and experiences are *extremely* relevant today (Source)
