    Waste of paper

    This book was a complete waste of paper. It mentioned nothing useful and was very poorly written. I went off of the previous review only to find out that the review was written by a guy that is a business partner of the author!!! No wonder he gave it a good review. I was looking for a decent book on Global business and this one missed the mark. And when doing my research on the book I realized that the author is less than stellar in his credibility in his business dealings. A simple Google search with his name and the word scam showed me that.

    A MUST READ FOR SERIOUS INVESTORS

    I was very satisfied with the content and presentation. I found that the book was easy reading but the salient points were thoughty. I believe the average investment reader should read it a few times to be able to absorb the underlying messages. Thinking globally will be the market of the future and I suggest you get acquainted with it now.
