Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's said you're supposed to buy when blood is running in the streets. Marshall has put the theory into practice. This book is a great front line view of what's really going on in the most important country in the Muslim world."
     -Doug Casey, author of New York Times #1 bestseller Crisis Investing

"Marshall Stocker reveals what headlines and sound bites do not, a captivating account of a Westerner's life in the Middle East. Readers will cheer, laugh, and wince as Marshall learns to navigate through all levels of Arab society, from street vendor to government leader. Don't Stand Under a Tree When It Rains is essential reading for any anyone aspiring to an accurate understanding of doing business in the Middle East."
    -David M. Beasley, Governor of South Carolina, 1995-1999

"Endlessly entertaining and incredibly informative, Don't Stand Under a Tree When It Rains offers a front-row seat to the cataclysmic political, economic, and social upheaval in Egypt and is truly a must-read for anyone seeking genuine understanding of a changing Egypt. Stocker offers in-depth analysis and profound insight into this critically important country at a critically important moment in its history, all in the context of his fascinating story of daily life and the extraordinary characters of Egypt."
     -Aaron DeLong, former Economic Officer, U.S. Embassy Cairo, Egypt
