Review:

Born in Shanghai and educated at the London School of Economics and Harvard Business School, venture-capital investment manager Michael Tang has been shaped by both the legends of his native land and the realities of his chosen world. In A Victor's Reflections, he presents dozens of legends along with succinct commentary (on how they apply to our modern-day business life) that are based upon realities. Tang offers a slight twist on the tendency in the current crop of books to link management advice with the activities of a specific leader or era by expanding his scope to the entire roster of great Chinese figures, including Confucius, sixth-century scholar Yen Chi-tui, the Art of War's Sun Tzu, third-century ruler Tsao Tsao, and many others. In sections discussing issues ranging from ethics and human resources to sexual harassment and "the art of living," Tang presents brief, contemporary fables that illuminate the classic precepts around which the Chinese have rallied for thousands of years. With morals like "One cannot lead without loyalty" and "A symbol can be a powerful management tool," the stories, and Tang's assessments, are both enjoyable and instructive. --Howard Rothman
