The narration, by the wonderfully named Stow Lovejoy, is delivered in a business-minded, mid-toned American voice that you can listen to for hours on end without pain. It is very easy with a book where myriad facts are dealt out to get lost and confused, necessitating lots of rewinding to pick up the thread. I am happy to report that this does not happen here, in spite of the heavyweight subject matter. Mr. Navarro presents his evidence and arguments simply, and has divided the book into chapters that concentrate on one specific area at a time.
I listened to the whole book in one sitting; such was the power of both content and narrator. I would recommend this book to everyone; not just those interested in world politics and economics, but also to those who think that their country has nothing to fear from the awakening dragon...

In The Coming China Wars, best-selling author Peter Navarro previews all these potential conflicts, and reveals the urgent, radical decisions that must be made to avoid catastrophe. You'll learn how China's thirst for oil is driving nuclear proliferation in Iran, genocide in the Sudan, even Japan's remilitarization. You'll discover China's shocking role in the drug trade and how its reborn flesh trade may help trigger tomorrow's worst AIDS crisis.
Navarro also reveals how China has become the world's most ruthless imperialist; how it is promoting global environmental disaster; and, perhaps most terrifying of all, how this nuclear superpower and pirate nation may be spiraling toward internal chaos.
The threat is real. We all must come to understand it and then act! Start here and now by arming yourself with the information and insights of The Coming China Wars.

Wow! After listening to this book, the label "made in China" takes on a whole different meaning. Very informative. The Chinese government finances our debt so we can buy more cheap goods from China. This is a vicious cycle that can not go on for ever. Free trade is not the same as fair trade. The question is, will the US be the loser or will China self implode first?
This audiobook is a MUST for everyone. I knew some of what Mr. Navarro spoke of but I had no idea how far-reaching this has become. Be afraid, be very afraid.
we all at one time or another have wondered if china is going to eat the US economy. At the end of the day, they just might but, this book illustrates all the hurdles they will have to go over to make it happen - and it doesn't look too likely anymore to me. Did you know there is a huge HIV crisis in china? that the pollution and run-off from china affects the weather patterns from LA to Aspen?
in order to have a discussion around china's economy, this book is a must read/listen. I highly recommend it!
