George Cole Scott, President, Closed-End Fund Advisors

"Mobius is a true master of developing market investing. In this book, he reduces the complexities of the subject to entertaining reading; provides simplicity that masks the intricacies of underlying theories and practicalities; and offers clarity of compelling logic in advice and conclusions."
Gordian Gaeta, emerging markets investor and author of Frontiers in Credit Risk

"With this Little Book, Mobius shares a wealth of experience—40 years in emerging markets —along with the lessons he has learned from the wealth he has accumulated for his clients in growing his emerging market kitty from US$100 million to US$50 billion."
Tony Shale, CEO, Euromoney Institutional Investor, Asia
