About the Author:

Head of emerging markets and global macro at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, Ruchir Sharma is the author of the international bestseller Breakout Nations. He writes frequently for the Wall Street Journal and Foreign Affairs and lives in New York City.

Review:

The head of Morgan Stanley 's emerging markets division conducts a brisk worldwide tour in search of new markets ready for takeoff. No first-book jitters for Sharma, longtime columnist for the likes of Newsweek and the Wall Street Journal. His smooth, almost chummy style suits him ideally for guiding civilians through the sometimes-arcane thicket of the dismal science, looking for those emerging markets likely to disappoint or exceed expectations in the coming years... Confining his predictions to the near future, Sharma refreshingly comes across as that rare thing Harry Truman once sought: a 'one-handed economist' willing to stake his reputation without resort to on the other hand equivocation. For investors looking to place their bets and for general readers looking to understand the global economic landscape in the wake of the Great Recession.

Accessible to newbies and revelatory for veterans, Sharma's observations upend conventional wisdom regarding what it takes to succeed in the relentlessly competitive global marketplace.

[A] country-by-country tour de force of what makes emerging markets tick. He is an excellent writer with a keen eye for detail and a lyrical prose sense... As with Michael Lewis Boomerang on the European crisis, for sheer readability and insight on the various parts of the ongoing emerging drama I daresay you won t find a better choice. --Jon Anderson

Mr. Sharma 's intent is to help you find the best places around the world to invest, emphasizing that it will take some work on your part.

This week 's Book of the Week is, Breakout Nations by Ruchir Sharma, one of the world 's leading emerging market investors. This is the best book on global economic trends I ve read in a while. --Fareed Zakaria, CNN GPS

... it 's refreshing to read Breakout Nations, Ruchir Sharma 's book on the Bric countries Brazil, Russia, India, China and the rest of the developing world... [H]is book offers a careful view that has little truck with forecasts of the relentless Bric-led rise of the emerging world.

This week s Book of the Week is, Breakout Nations by Ruchir Sharma, one of the world s leading emerging market investors. This is the best book on global economic trends I ve read in a while. --Fareed Zakaria, CNN GPS

Breakout Nations works best as a compilation of highly illuminating country vignettes--similar, say, to Michael Lewis' Boomerang... As with Mr. Lewis' work on the European crisis, for sheer readability and insight on the various parts of the ongoing developing world drama, I dare say you won't find a better choice. --Jonathan Anderson

Which countries will rise to challenge them? In his best-selling book, writer and investor Ruchir Sharma identifies which countries are most likely to leap ahead and why, drawing insights from time spent on the ground and detailed demographic, political, and economic analysis.
