This book was an insightful look into the relationship between China and the West. The author uses his own personal experiences and anecdotes to generate a little more interest with topics that are usually quite academic. With his vast knowledge and experience with the two countries, he truly does provide quite a professional perspective on the need for improved relations. His points are especially important to those looking to do business in China or vice versa, as he provides great insight through his business background.
A quick and easy read with points that I think both countries should consider valid and valuable.
