    China today is visible everywhere: In the news, in the economic pressures battering America, in the workplace, and in every trip to the store. Provocative, timely, and essential, this dramatic account of China's growing dominance as an industrial super-power by journalist Ted C. Fishman explains how the profound shift in the global economic order has occurred, and why it already affects us all.

    Overall

    I don't presume to be an China expert by a long shot, but listening to this book on headphones while walking the streets of Shanghai (was there 4 years) it was really hard to stomach the book could possibly be talking about the same country as I was in. One example is the explanation that because labor is so cheap, a larger % of building costs goes to materials as was the case in the US 100 years back and thus everything being built is of such quality as the US had been. Has the author ever been to China at all and seen the amazing buildings everywhere which age 35 years and fall apart just 3 years after construction? Beyond absurd.

    Napoleon Hill interviewed the most famous (and richest) people of his time, and "The Success Formula" was published in Hill's 1928 book The Law of Success. Hill reveals additional information on his success formula in the most famous of his works, Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937. It has sold more than 30 million copies to date.

    Overall

    I realize this appeals to some, but if you respect 'reason' this is not a title you are going to enjoy. There are continual references to religion and the author elevates faith (and irrationality in my opinion) above reason. He talks of a man who set his will to get a million in funding and succeeded due to his "faith and conviction" it would "transmute into reality". But what of the 1,000's who did the same and it didn't materialize? Well, of course, no one cared to tell their stories! This book is a perfect example of "famous" does not equal "good". A waste of my credits that doesn't provide anything valuable to one not interested in superstition.
