About the Author
Originally from New Zealand, Rob Young has spent thirty years in Greater China including the last twenty years in Shanghai. He was the pioneer of western pubs in Shanghai and quickly became a high profile western entrepeneur in the city. Not restricted by the ivory towers of multinational corporations, Rob learnt to do business on the street "the Chinese way" and shares remarkable and very funny insights into the Chinese people and the Chinese system. Now semi-retired, Rob continues to live in Shanghai with his Shanghainese wife and their 12 year old daughter.
