Since the financial crisis, there have been numerous reports, articles and books highlighting the gloomy future ahead. Making Sense of Markets makes the case that received wisdom is still far too pessimistic, and that the future may be brighter than feared. A plain-speaking guide to keeping an open mind (and how to profit from it).

'There has never been a time in history when it wouldn't have been easy to find excuses not to invest. At last, an honest antidote, grounded on solid economic thinking, to combat our costly human tendency to pervasive pessimism when it comes to investing. This book punctures the too-easy consensus that the glass is half empty and provides a guide to how investors should really think about the world.'

Greg B Davies, PhD: Head of Behavioural-Quantitative Finance, Barclays Wealth and Investment Management

"A refreshingly clear, practical and provocative guide to investing that should appeal to individual savers and finance professionals alike. Gardiner combines a deep understanding of macroeconomic and finance theory (and its limits) with a wealth of investment experience. His conclusion: be humble, keep it simple, be optimistic!"

Joachim Fels, Global Economic Advisor, PIMCO

"Too many financial journalists and practitioners try to make the investment process more exciting than it should be and more esoteric than it needs to be. Kevin Gardiner, a credentialed, experienced practitioner and engaging writer, eschews over-dramatization and self-aggrandizement to offer a common sense approach to investing. Take his advice."

Aaron Gurwitz PhD, Former Chief Investment Officer at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management, and Adjunct Instructor in Economics, New York University

'A book full of common sense and wisdom which punctures several myths about economic performance, financial markets and the links between the two, Making Sense of Markets is a refreshing and insightful counter to the view that economic outcomes for decades to come will be weaker than in the past'

Professor David Miles, The Monetary Policy Committee, The Bank of England
