About this title


This book is aimed to provide practical and useful tips on doing business with China and the Chinese
people either for big or small deals based on the author’s 20-year personal experience in living and
working in China and the western world. The advices, glimpse and learning points included in the
book will guarantee to improve your ability for making more money and enjoying a better life in the
process of business interaction with the middle kingdom which is emerging as the new Superpower
of the world.

“Dr Shengfei Gan’s book on China is a remarkable work, written by a Chinese geologist who has not only grown up in China but has lived abroad for many years.  The book therefore offers a perspective on China through both Chinese and Western eyes.

The book is written in a plain and highly readable format which provides a remarkable insight into China from almost every aspect – covering its history, politics, religion, customs, lifestyle, etiquette, economic affairs and ways to approach business in and with China.

I believe it will become mandatory reading for anyone interested in China, whether as a student, academic, business executive, tourist, politician or simply someone trying learn more about China and understand the complexities of its culture, politics and long-term vision compared to the West.

I can heartily endorse this book as a most readable and interesting analysis of the greatest economic and cultural phenomenon of the twenty first century.”

 – Tony Trahar, Former Chief Executive, Anglo American Plc.

About the Author:

Dr Shengfei Gan, Director of Sand River Supplies (Pty) Ltd, started his career as a geologist in the South African mining industry and has worked for a number of mining houses including Iscor Ltd, Kumba Resources, and Anglo American. Later, he shifted his interest to the commercial field and became involved in investment opportunity evaluation, commodity marketing and business strategy development, before moving into executive management. Dr Gan has long been fascinated by the contrast between Chinese and western cultures and has devoted much time and effort in comparative studies. His article "Square Head and Round Head" was published in the Chinese magazine "China Capital" in 2002 and received praise from a wide ranging audience. Dr Gan is often invited to a variety of forums and institutions in South Africa, China, and abroad to present his knowledge and insight on China and Chinese culture.
