"How can one gain a foothold in a completely alien world? How can you lead employees whose language you don't even understand? And above all, how can you win the trust of a Chinese partner that you are totally dependent on? This book shows you China like it really is: inviting and fractious, dynamic and backward, totally exhausting but incredibly exciting."--Jacket." ;
