"For those who feel they've left it late on emerging markets, this book will revive your investment spirits. It shows we are witnessing the last great industrial revolution. Marr and Reynard's explanations of the investment opportunity – the cons as well as the pros – make this a must-read for investors. Not only are the BRIC economies fully analyzed, but the new opportunities in frontier markets too. If you want to understand the profound economic changes going on in the world today, read it and buy copies for your children and grandchildren – for it is they who will see the reality of this massive shift in economic power."
—Mark Dampier, Head of Research, Hargreaves Lansdown
"There is no doubt about the potential returns to be made from investing in emerging markets but it comes with some risk, so a book like this is a very timely addition to investors' knowledge – particularly as it is written by two of the best investment journalists in this country."
—Lawrence Gosling, Editorial Director, Investment Week
"Anyone who has money in emerging markets or is thinking about investing must read this book. Marr and Reynard gain access to some of the industry's best minds on emerging markets, but don't just get swept away with the euphoria and excitement – they have produced a measured and perfectly balanced guide. The issues are presented and explained in a clear and entertaining way; the conclusions are simple and unambiguous. They dare to ask whether this time 'it's different' – whether emerging markets will race ahead of Western markets. You will know the answer once you've read this book."
