The China Price

I am always surprised when a journalist takes the pain to study a subject in depth and uncover insights that are not obvious. This is certainly the case with this book. Its study focuses on the Pearl River delta, which is where I set up my company. I can recognize my everyday reality in the case studies. Things have changed a bit since this book was published, with the inflation issues and then the international crisis, but what it describes is still very true.
