Publisher's Summary

In an era of slowing growth, Africa is home to a trillion-dollar, resource-rich economy, and six of the ten fastest growing markets in the world. Success in Africa introduces the ambitious CEOs who are building the continent. These stories of growth, technology, and tradition bring life to one of the most important stories of the global economy: a successful Africa. The CEOs of General Electric, The Coca Cola Company, and Tullow Oil join Africa's leading CEOs to share insights on what wins in this fast-growth market.

With twenty years of experience in frontier markets, including a decade working in Africa, author Jonathan Berman engages with top business leaders on the vast opportunities and challenges of the continent. Success in Africa pushes past the headlines on Africa's growth to answer the questions often asked by companies and investors: Who do I work with there and what drives them? How do I deal with government? What about war, disease, and poverty? What about China? How do I win? Success in Africa provides on-the-ground perspective, personal stories, and insight that Robert Rubin calls "essential reading for all who are interested in Africa for reasons of business, investment, policy, or curiosity." Gildan Media and Bibliomotion are proud to bring you another Bibliomotion Audiobook. Featuring exceptional content for today's listener, these notable audiobooks contain the essential tools that can be applied to every facet of your life.

Critic Reviews

"We are beginning to see Africa's moment in the sun—it has been home to some of the world's fastest growing economies over the last two decades, while extreme poverty rates have sharply declined and key health indicators have improved. In Success in Africa, some of today's most influential business leaders share their firsthand insights about working on a continent bright with shared opportunity, and explain why Africa's future is more promising than ever." —President Bill Clinton

Only introductory, but very compelling

Success in Africa should be read as a teaser of things to come. Not a comprehensive text, but enough to address some pivotal misconceptions, and peak your interest.

Remarkably Effective and Instructive

This book was exactly what I needed it to be -an instructive narrative on the prospects of building and maintaining businesses in Africa. Its reliance upon anecdotal information from those who've been there and done that makes it an excellent introduction to the subject for anyone mapping out a project there. The narration was a bit fast, but was otherwise easy to follow. Highly recommended.

Good read.

Although much of it is obvious to those attentive to Africa. African enterprise is real. You have to listen to your passion and follow your heart to execute your business model in Africa.

an inch wide and half an inch deep

Here's the condensed formula I learned from the book.: be there, be serious, think long term.
