"A very interesting look at the exciting rise of innovation in China."
Marc Andreesen, Cofounder, Andreesen Horowitz and Cofounder, Netscape Communications

"China is undergoing the most important transformation in its history and Rein provides the road map to understanding how the techies, the entrepreneurs, the venture capitalists, the dreamers, and the tinkerers are driving that change. Decisions are no longer driven by cost–constrained manufacturing but increasingly by cutting–edge innovation. How China is moving, in fits and starts, up the value chain to creativity is the important message of this book, one of the core business messages of the twenty–first century."
Ambassador Frank Lavin, Chairman, Export Now, Former U.S. Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade

"Once again, Shaun Rein provides fresh insight. At a time when people are preoccupied with challenges, Shaun sees future opportunities from a unique perspective."
Tim Dattels, Managing Partner, TPG Capital Asia

"Rein gives an insightful guide to the forces driving the maturation of China′s economy as it transitions from one based on emulation and adaptation to being propelled by innovation. As an expert on consumer behavior he also provides a useful analysis of how the country′s spending classes are maturing alongside its industry, and the opportunities that this implies for businesses operating in China."
John Quelch, Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, and Former Dean of CEIBS and London Business School
