Publisher's Summary

The signs are everywhere. China unilaterally claims the entire South China Sea as sovereign territory, then builds artificial islands to bolster its claim. It suddenly activates an air defense identification zone over the East China Sea, and threatens to down any aircraft that does not report its position. It builds roads into Indian territory, then redraws the maps to show that it is actually Chinese territory. The People's Republic under President Xi Jinping is quickly becoming The Bully of Asia.

Great listen

The narrator is now my favorite narrator. He kept me interested in what is already a great book. I'm gonna play it over just for memories sake, but it's informative.

Excellent!

Most riveting book I've listened to in some time. Time to get real about China.

Eye opening, up to date

Wow. I, like most Americans had no idea of the extent of the problem. Hopefully some of our professors, politicians and diplomats will read this book. A lot of the headlines make sense in light of the facts relayed. I expect this book is probably banned in certain parts of Asia.

Decent

While the author raises many points, it’s nothing new for “China watchers” or really anyone who takes interest in east Asia. What does come to the forefront though about halfway through is the authors personal grudge with China and his political leanings. Not quite an exposé or really much more than personal beliefs of the author. It’s well known China’s mal-intentioned actions. If you’re new to the study of east Asia, specifically China this would be a good read (or listen) for you though.

Must-read book for understanding China's ambitions

A thorough analysis of the Chinese Communist ambitions in the world, based in the author's deep understanding of Chinese history, culture, and mindset. This book should startle American readers; Communist (more like Stalinist-fascist) China loathes us, openly so. What will we do about it, given how many nice, plastic baubles they make for us?

Eye opening

Very good book with history, current events to back up his point of view about China's desire and path to asian and world domination, and possible reaponses.

Extraordinary Read

Should be required reading for all diplomats dealing with current day China. Lifts the cloak of secrecy and deception in dealing with the current PRC leadership and the revisionist view of China history that has taken over China and explains why the US and others, simply do not understand the PRC Communist Party and the Chinese people's attitudes with respect to the "Barbarians" (other than Chinese) in the goal of making China the true leader of the world.

Great book but poor pronunciation

Would you consider the audio edition of Bully of Asia to be better than the print version?

The printed book is great but the audio mispronounces the word "hegemon", which is a problem because nearly every 2nd paragraph contains the word, as it is the central idea of the book. Very annoying. It's a shame because the book addresses the most important political issue of our time (the rise of China) and everyone should read or listen to it.
