Just started reading and really like the book. It has case studies from a diverse cross-section of industries as well as lots of great stats.
Examples of interesting stats:
Africa is richer than India on the basis of gross national income (GNI) per capita, and a dozen African countries have a higher GNI per capita than China. (inside flap)
If Africa were a single country, according to World Bank data, it would have had $978 billion total gross national income (GNI) in 2006…Africa would show up as the tenth largest economy in the world…In fact, this places Africa ahead of …Brazil, Russia, India… (p.7)
Portrayal of opportunities and challenges is fair and balanced.
