"Reality is disappointing, Jack. China is better."

"China Fortunes is an extraordinary story conducted by a talented storyteller. Kuhns′s pen drives you in a world unknown to most of us, taking you through fascinating and moving situations, and like every great journey, you won′t come back exactly the same."
Marc Levy, author, The Shadow Thief

"China Fortunes is a smart and stylish take on what business really is in modern China. Kuhns knows both cold, and most important, he can tell a great story . . . ironic, fast moving, and sharply observed. It will lock you in."
Terry McDonell, editor, Sports Illustrated Group

"China Fortunes is one man from Wall Street′s incredible journey from the emerging days of China all the way to the present. John Kuhns takes us along on his wild ride through the remote, mysterious Middle Kingdom, risking millions, but gaining much more. A must–read for anyone interested in China and business."
Kevin Wall, Emmy® Award winning producer and creator of Live Aid, Live Earth, and other global events
