I stumbled on this book by chance. I was skeptical at first and assumed that this was another "hocus pocus - you'll walk over big water - and meet someone with blonde hair and blue eyes" job. What a pleasant surprise! The author writes in a scholarly and easily to access style. The text is clear, and concisely maps out the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities for investors (big and small, experienced professional and beginners) in global markets over the next 20 odd years. Its hard to believe that there is such a book. Its simply amazing that the information the book provides is so useful and masterfully presented. A definitely read!
