NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution and future of China's state-controlled capitalism.

Hank Paulson has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.

In DEALING WITH CHINA, Paulson draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:

  • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?
  • How does business really get done there?
  • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?
  • How can the U.S. negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?

Written in the same anecdote-rich, page-turning style as Paulson's bestselling memoir, On the Brink, DEALING WITH CHINA is certain to become the classic and definitive examination of how to engage China's leaders as they build their economic superpower.

18. The Pebble and the Avalanche How Taking Things Apart Creates Revolutions (Large Print 16pt) - Moshe Yudkowsky

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 29.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

This book explains how to understand, create, and apply revolutions in business and technology. This book provides ideas, methods, and examples and shows you how to use them to create useful and exciting innovations. ''Taking things apart creates revolutions'' is the simple, one-line answer, but the more I looked into this relatively simple idea the more rich, the more interesting, and the more fun it became. I hope you'll enjoy the rest of this book as I guide you through the details. The main focus of the book is on business and technology. The ideas in this book apply across a wide range of activities; I've included discussions about government and economics, but have left out any mention of medicine, health care, or religion.

20. The Untrained Environmentalist How an Australian Grazier Brought His Barren Property Back to Life (Large Print 16pt) - John Fenton

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Fifty years ago a young farmer named John Fenton took over his family's run-down sheep property in Victoria. Named Lanark, the property was barren, windswept and environmentally all but dead. Fenton set about bringing the property back to life by bringing the environment back to life. He planted trees. He reinstated wetlands. He created wildlife reserves. Other farmers thought he had gone a little mad, but Fenton pressed on. As time went on, he came to realise he had stumbled on something extremely important for the Australian landscape as a whole; an integrated, sustainable farming system that was in tune with nature. Thus, he became an environmentalist almost by chance. Year after year, the tree-planting continued. By the time Fenton handed over the property to his son a few years ago, he had planted close to 100,000 trees. He had turned a desolate, degraded farm into an oasis teeming with bird life. In this book he tells the inspiring story of how his miracle was achieved.
