Forget current affairs and dry historical non fiction, if you want to learn about the modern Chinese mindset and where it comes from then this is the book for you. Brilliant in its simplicity.

The narrator Dave King brings this fast paced, clever and very enjoyable book alive. It runs for ten hours and I listened to it in just three sittings, superb.

The characters in this book leap out from the page and in particular the crude, intense American Businessman repulses the reader but his story draws you in to the tragic yet tender conclusion.
