A good and interesting book written by an expert who knows what he is talking about Nevertheless the description is one way a bright future for a great Country full stop Too ittle consideration is given to the negative side of today s China including social considerations IP human rights etc Also 50 pages shorter would have been enough This said in many respects it is a mind opener even if some conclusions should be supported by harder data and not by somewhat personal considerations Edward Tse is well known in the Chinese consulting industry and knows his stuff which is eminently evident from even a brief perusal of his new book China s Disruptors This is a thin book and a uick read but it stands out from a glut of other books on Chinese business for one simple reason this book is one of the first to accurately capture what the fast moving innovative and exciting new sectors of Chinese business feel Spots Fun with Friends like on the ground Disclaimer Iive and work in ChinaTse is doing than describing a historical trend or a new current in business practice which he undoubtedly does very well His book is a depiction of a zeitgeist the texture and atmosphere of an age For the average reader even those fairly up to date on China this is a rare glimpse into a world that is alien to both everyday Western experience and most assumptions about what China is and is not I haven t read a book A Kiss To Change Her Life like this since Zha Jianying s Tide Players that feelsike the author s boots are on the ground instead of simply hovering in some Their Convenient Amish Marriage (Pinecraft Homecomings level of the stratosphere peering at China from on highOther reviewers will comment on the stories and businessessons in the book to be sure this book has all this and in spades This book will also eventually get blasted by those who think that Tse is ooking at China through rose colored glasses For example the FT s review In these pages entrepreneurs are pushing boundaries never bribing officials or pinching other companies blueprints He hardly alludes to the close ties that China s entrepreneurs must cultivate with the ruling Communist party nor to tainted milk crashing high speed trains or dodgy wealth management products The na vet argument falls flat for two reasons First this criticism ignore s the book s central thesis namely why the businesses and entrepreneurs that Tse chronicles are different from many of their contemporaries Hence the book s title Second China is a complex enough society arguably the most complex in the world to encompass a multiplicity of valid stories and even narratives A valid account of today s China is enough of a challenge in and of itselfTse s book need not be read as a be all and end all judgment on.
