Mr. China tells the rollicking story of a young man who goes to China with the misguided notion that he will help bring the Chinese into the modern world, only to be schooled by the most resourceful and creative operators he would ever meet. Part memoir, part parable, Mr. China is one man's coming-of-age story where he learns to respect and admire the nation he sought to conquer.

Tim Clissold has been working in China for seventeen years and has traveled to almost every part of the country. He lives in Beijing with his wife and four children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful... like being there with him! Mr. China is a fantastic synopsis of the challenges and opportunities doing business in China, both then and now. Clissold does an excellent job of providing the requisite political and historical background, both on a macro and micro level - and then proceeds to take the reader with him on his wild journey into the unknown! Highly recommended read - educational and entertaining!
