About the Book
Paul Midler takes us for a ride through the fastest-growing economy in the world,revealing what can—and sometimes does—go wrong when U.S. companies shift production to China. Working in the heart of China’s export hub, in the country’s southern region, he has the advantage of a front-row seat to the no-holds-barred games played between manufacturers and importers. He introduces us to a cast of real-life characters and tells his story with a mix of affection and skepticism for what is taking place in China today.
About the Author
Paul Midler graduated college with a concentration in Chinese history. Following a career spent in China, he detailed his misadventures in manufacturing in “Poorly Made in China,” a book that has been called a must read for anyone doing business in China today.
