Ralph Wanger explains the principles of investing in small, rapidly growing companies whose stocks represent good value. Anyone who invested $10,000 in his Acorn Fund at its inception in 1970 would have $618,000 at the end of 1996. But whether you are investing in mutual funds or buying individual stocks on your own - or doing both - A Zebra in Lion Country offers an investment philosophy that will carry you through the rough spells and bring you greater wealth over the long term. Famed for his witty, insightful reports to shareholders, Wanger displays his irreverent savvy in this guide to locating small company "value" stocks that will yield well-above-average returns. As the title suggests, investors are like zebras in lion country: They must settle for half-eaten grass in the middle of the herd, or seek fresh grass at the outer edge, where hungry lions lurk. Wanger shows every investor how to achieve the right balance of safety and risk, and imagination and discipline, to survive and prosper in the investment jungle. Destined to become a classic in the field of investing, A Zebra in Lion Country is as entertaining as it is instructive.

“Ray Dalio’s excellent study provides an innovative way of thinking about debt crises and the policy response.” - Ben Bernanke “Ray Dalio’s book is must reading for anyone who aspires to prevent or manage through the next financial crisis.” - Larry Summers “A terrific piece of work from one of the world’s top investors who has devoted his life to understanding markets and demonstrated that understanding by navigating the 2008 financial crisis well.” - Hank Paulson “An outstanding history of financial crises, including the devastating crisis of 2008, with a very valuable framework for understanding why the engine of the financial system occasionally breaks down, and what types of policy actions by central banks and governments are necessary to resolve systemic financial crises. This should serve as a play book for future policy makers, with practical guidance about what to do and what not to do.” - Tim Geithner “Dalio’s approach, as in his investment management, is to synthesize information, and to convert a sprawling and multi-faceted issue into a clear-cut process of cause and effect.  Critically, he simplifies without over-simplifying.” -  Financial Times

Profiting from China without getting burned is currently an obsession with the international investment community. The estimated size of the Chinese economy has just been revised upwards, making it the 4th largest in the world behind the US, Japan and Germany, and ahead of the UK but the idea that investing in China is a sure–fire, get–rich–quick investment story is dangerously misleading. ? The author of the bestselling Investment Biker, Adventure Capitalist, and Hot Commodities, is providing a book that provides a window into what will soon be the most vital, most lucrative market of our time: China. ? While the Chinese economy has had an annual average growth of 9.4 percent since 1978, and despite the ongoing speculation about China?s future, its stock market is now emerging from a six–year low. ? As the Chinese economy continues to lumber toward a free market system – and as the Chinese government inevitably unpegs its currency and opens its stock market to more foreign investment, Rogers foresees an abundance of opportunities for investors. ? In this book, he shows readers not only how to take advantage of China?s coming dominance – what, where, how, and when to buy – but how China will impact individual companies, markets, and economies around the world. ? "Nobody with blue eyes has ever made money investing in China," the old saying goes. Jim Rogers aims to disprove this adage. Jim Rogers co–founded the Quantum Fund and retired at age 37. Since then, he has served as a sometime professor of finance at Columbia University?s business school, and as a media commentator. He appears twice a week on Fox Business News, and is the author of three immensely successful books.
