“For many American executives China is still inscrutable. Few people writing about doing business in China can provide the academic-practioner and Chinese-American balance that Mark Lam and John Graham provide in China Now. It is a must read for all American managers and executives working with and negotiating with Chinese partners. The book holds the keys for building successful, long lasting business relationships in China.”-Katherine Xin, Editor-in-Chief, Harvard Business Review (China), Professor of Management, Michelin Chair in Leadership and Human Resource Management, China Europe International Business School (Shanghai), and Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior, IMD (Switzerland)
