Jack puts helpful information into an enjoyable format, recalling his own experiences of living and doing business in China. Very helpful to all who plan on doing business in China as well as those of us who have been. It is a great reminder of the complexity we find in one of the liveliest economies in the world.

I had the uncommon privilage of meeting Jack Perkowski recently in Beijing when he came to graciously speak to a group of our MBA students. There is no doubt in my mind that he has captured the true essence of doing business in China today. Managing the Dragon is a book that was born out of the blood, sweat, and tears of experience not in some comfortable study of theory, hearsay and excerpts from the Wall Street Journal. ASIMCO, the highly successful auto and truck components manufacturer that Jack founded is truly a testament to perseverance. I have often wondered if the stories about the difficulty of doing business in China were true. Apparently, they are, but for very different reasons than are espoused by armchair entrepreneurs. I won't give away the secrets of Jack's success, he does that quite eloquently in this book. After having read this, the mystique of China still looms, but the apprehension of doing business there is no longer a stumbling block. Jack Perkowski is the real deal. I'm a better man for having met him and having read his incredible story...jim walzWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
