As strategy consultant Berman explains in his first book, the 54 countries on the African continent contain six of the 10 fastest-growing markets in the world, and 60% of the world's future farming potential. There are more than 150 billion companies in Africa, and more than 500 with annual sales of million. Here, Berman, who has lived and worked in Asia and worked in Africa, informs readers about perspectives on Africa, who works there (including budding CEOs), and why. However, despite the book's great premise, Berman only skims the surface: Africa needs everything, and success in Africa comes from filling it.An interview with the author is in Humanosphere.
