In a world where commodities are increasing in importance due to the growth in emerging markets, issues over fossil fuels, renewable energy, rare earths, inflation, and precious metals (amongst many other issues), the necessity of this book is greater than at any time since the 1970s. The growing knowledge that commodities can be an effective tool for portfolio diversification has increased their desirability, and the volatility in these markets has necessitated a greater knowledge of their machinations.
