Book reviews

''Individual investors always have high hopes on their investments. Their dreams may come true in emerging markets. Dr. Mark Mobius explains well how attractive such markets are but he also illustrate country risks of which investors should be aware. He (the guru) reminds me the basic yet very important attitude; that is the patience to examine the market situation for the right moment as well as the resolutions to exercise and implement the investment decisions.''
----- Natsuki Asakawa, Author, kaigaitoushi.com

''Dr. Mark Mobius is an investor flying around all the countries. This book is good to learn the know-how for the emerging markets investment, also the well-drawn portrait of him makes readers enjoy to read. Seeing he has succeeded through education and hard work, it reminds me of keeping learning diligently expands our views. I can recommend this book for not only grown-ups but also school students.''

''One thing that interests me when I read "Manga - Mark Mobius" was his unbounded investment thinking. Clearly, he is an out-of-box thinker, unrestricted from a country or any conventional way of thinking. This probably came from the fact that he is a German, and his wife is from Puerto Rico, not to mention hard and difficult experiences he had during the World War II. This may also be true to someone like George Soros.

It was probably late 80s that I had a pleasure of meeting with Mark Mobius, I now see the secret of the energy that I felt two decades ago. His unrelenting investment decision is remarkable. In the 80s, I was in NYC working as a sell-side director of research, serving Sir John Templeton, I was often asked by him if I know any stock that is undervalued by any standard and yet, no one is interested in buying, regardless of the location of the issuing company.

Was the DNA of Sir Templeton inherited by Dr. Mobius? I would rather think that the similar DNAs attracted each other and made these two giants work together. Unbounded investment thinking with unshaken confidence results in unmatched performance.''
