Zumanomics is a valuable contribution to the national debate and cautionary tale about imprudent spending. I recommend it for politicians and voters alike. - The Times (March 2009) This is a timely book, comprehensive, insightful and recommended reading for individuals interested in understanding the challenges for the new government and the way forward towards unlocking the growth potential with a shared prosperity for all in South Africa. - The Witness Durban (April 2009)
