I thoroughly enjoyed reading this in-depth book about Africa's economic revolution and its maturing democratic culture. This book is packed with insight, facts and figures. Charles Robertson and the authors predict that Africa's GDP will increase from $2 trillion today to $29 trillion in today's money by 2050. A really fascinating read.

I have read a number of books about Africa and its economic growth and this one definitely stands out. It is a good read well written and accessible and very factual and visual which makes it a page turner.

Anyone going or interested in the continent should read it. It is very (overly) positive at times though as i understand the body publishing the book is a consultancy encouraging potential investors; i.e. it looks only at the success stories and omits the other side of the business which normally should be balanced. An informed reader would be normally aware of that and expand to other books that show a different view. Thoroughly enjoyable and a mine of intelligence.
