Poorly Made in China: An Insider's Account of the Tactics Behind China's Production Game
Poorly Made in China: An Insider's Account of the Tactics Behind China's Production Game
by Paul Midler

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkably well-written overview of production games by Chinese manufacturers, 8 July 2009
This book is a remarkably well-written account of the various (oftentimes nefarious) games played by Chinese manufacturers - especially when dealing with western clients.
Paul Midler narrates his various adventures as an intermediary between chinese bosses or factory owners and western CEOs or managers who are hoping to benefit from the "low cost" Chinese production environment.
He shows with clarity as well as humor how local factory owners and managers engage in various shenanigans, in effect engagin in a negative kaizen (i.e. continuous worsening) of product quality and features at the detriment of gullible clients.
This book is a must read for any person who is interested in what's happening in China today, particularly for those who have a business interest in that country.
