5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 12 Sep 2013

This review is from: How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region (Paperback)
What an amazing piece of work! Bringing together the huge amounts of history, economics, politics for 8 of East Asia biggest counties for the past 50-100 years, into a massively easy, informative book.
This details where the economic policies came from, where the countries went right, why they went wrong and all in an easy way. There are no huge graphs or data. It is told very simply, in real world terms, almost a travel book.
For someone who is living in Asia and has a passing interest in politics, I feel that this book has had a profound effect on the way I look at the world. Its that good.

And not to worry about China, they are just Taiwan 10 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars How & why, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region (Paperback)
A must for those who want to understand why some eastern countries had economic/industrial success while others didn't. A good companion for the present western difficulties.

This review is from: How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region (Paperback)
Bought this for my husband at his request. He seems to think it a very worthwhile read for
anyone working in China or other parts of the far east.
