“This book contains enough financial insights to qualify for the curriculum of a finance course in university. The quality of characterisation and the pace of the story however, probably ensure it’s too interesting to get there.” –Oliver Hoffmann Sub-Saharan Equities Analyst

“Do yourself a favour and read Sunil Shah’s White Man’s numbers – self published tale about the life of a fund manager – financial thriller!” -Bruce Whitfield, Host of the Money Show, South Africa’s premier daily Money Program

      Hello Bankole, thank you for interest. You can buy the kindle version on Amazon and other ereader formats on Lulu.com. The hard copy is only available in S Africa I’m afraid. Would love your feedback once you’ve read it…

    Well written, insightful. This book gives you a glimpse of the daily stress and burden on Fund Managers who have to invest for their clients and some ethical dilemma’s they may come across as well as the cultural diversity present in South African corporates. There is also an insight into the South African business situation which is not always that clear cut, dealing with politics, employees and remuneration. The personalities of the characters in the story are well defined and so detailed, drawing the reader into the psyche of each person characterized in the book.

  20. You, my pal, totally ROCK! I found exactly what I was looking for. Your article on whitemansnumbers.com | A financial thriller by Sunil Shah contains useful content that I would like to share with my friends. I do have one small favor though, when you have some time, could you check out my site on find imei number? Thank you!

  21. Sunhill,
    O Sunhill, what a good way to escape. I fell the road was hard, and dark and dangerous too…
    The book-top looks like you so much ! A slap given with two suddenly frozen black eyes, a killer smile, and I got the dried and short laugh.
    And beautiful. The vertical succession of the three parts linked only by the standing of the two bodies. All is said. ( Great- Britain and West Europe in the full middle, a water-pool where the sitting naked body is hesitating to jump ). So sadly but strongly beautiful.
    Congratulations Sunhill, Congratulations and admiration.
    Un bisou à Mange-Tout (Mange-Toutou pour moi, car “Toutou” veut dire “chien” en langage familier)
