Reviews

'If you wish to learn about Doing Business with China, buy. You'll read up-to-date, well written and varied real-life cases about foreign and Chinese companies doing business in this fast-changing and dynamic market. The overall message is be pragmatic, learn as you go, adapt. China's patriarch, Deng Xiao Ping said, 'learn from facts'. You can't fail to learn much from this excellent book' - Jonathan Story, Emeritus Professor of International Political Economy, INSEAD

'As someone who has 'done business in China' during my career, I can highly recommend this book to anyone intending to do the same. Hamilton and Zhang have penetrated beyond clichés and theory to offer a real 'hands on' guide of what it takes to play and win in this increasingly critical market and, in turn, work with Chinese companies internationally. China offers a huge goldmine of opportunity in the 21st century but prospectors would do well to heed the pragmatic lessons of this book as they pursue their ambitions.' - Peter Yorke, 'Global Marketing Director, Procter & Gamble'

'Doing Business with China offers a crash course in understanding the cultural differences between Chinese and Western business practices and how vital it is not to underestimate these. It is supported by factbased insights into recent high-profile case studies which make this a valuable and entertaining read for anyone venturing into or doing business with or in China.' - Harold Dyrvik, Regional President, Asia Pacific, Bacardi Limited

'...an interesting guide to understanding the Chinese way of doing business and how to prepare for the inevitable bumps that await any MNC in a market so fastgrowing, yet so different from the West.' - The Economic Times
