MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is an extraordinarily useful book that should be read by every manager who aspires to do business in or with China. The explanation of the concepts and practical realities of Face, Guanxi and Harmony and how they interrelate is brilliant. This book

will save you years of confusion and misunderstanding.' John P. Shelley, CEO, Retail & Commercial Markets, Asia, Royal Bank of Scotland

'This is an excellent guide to understanding how Chinese leadership styles can impact on the way of doing business here, and it is essential reading for any executive involved in dealing with the Chinese. It is well written, easy to read, captures the essence of the challenges in the Chinese market incisively and provides very insightful practical advice. This book gets to the heart of how things are done in China and sets out the context and practical approaches that every manager working in China needs

to know.' Wang Zheshun, President, Sinopec Petrochemical Institute of Beijing

'China is our second largest market globally and I am of course pleased to see this continuous strong growth here. But the paradox is that China is changing at an unprecedented speed yet this development is still based on a very strong traditional cultural foundation. This book is a must read guide for leaders in foreign companies operating in China. It combines in a very perceptive way the big picture with insight into the must know details for success, for in China the devil is in the detail. I hope many leaders will benefit from reading it.' Mogens Terp Paulsen, President of Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Controls Division, Danfoss

'Targeted at foreign and non-Chinese business people, this book is able to capture the ingredients of success in a complex market. It offers guidance on how to manage in a Chinese context and captures the essence of the philosophy the Chinese people follow. This book is impressive and will be of great use to managers working in and with China and is a must read for those contemplating working in China.' Zhang Jianning, Vice President, BP China

'This is a fascinating book that manages to capture the essence of Chinese philosophy and how to combine this with Western business practices. The authors have done a superb job in illustrating this dichotomy in a clear and succinct way. As a Chinese, I was very impressed with the guidance and practical tips in the book, which are so helpful for understanding the art of leadership in a diverse cultural environment, and what it takes to be an effective leader in all business environments. I highly recommend this book for any manager working in China.' Peng Ningke, Vice President, Government Affairs and Public Policy, Dow Chemicals, Greater China; Board Governor of the American Chamber of Commerce in China
