What's Wrong with China is the most cogent, insightful and penetrating examination I have read on the paradoxes and self-deceptions of Modern China, written by someone who has lived in the country and dealt with it day to day for decades. This book will be hated by the commissars, because it is a triumph of analysis and good sense. -PAUL THEROUX I sure wish I'd read this book before heading to China-or Chinatown, for that matter. China runs on an entirely different operating system-both commercial and personal. Midler's clear, clever analysis and illuminating, often hilarious tales foster not only understanding but respect. -MARY ROACH From the Back Cover What's Wrong with China is the widely anticipated follow-up to Paul Midler's Poorly Made in China, an exposE of China manufacturing practices. Applying a wider lens in this account, he reveals many of the deep problems affecting Chinese society as a whole. Once again, Midler delivers the goods by rejecting commonly held notions, breaking down old myths, and providing fresh explanations of lesser-understood cultural phenomena.
