A modern but timeless global business story in the spirit of James Clavell, China Fortunes is a vast and sweeping tale addressing one of today's hottest topics - doing business in China. Taking readers on the ground from China's early opening up to current times, the book traces the changes of fortune and cultural edification of Jack Davis, an America Financier lured by the spectacular promise of the confusing land, from early success and a meteoric IPO that seems too easy, to treachery and loss, and triumphant financial and emotional renewal. Drawing on the experiences of one of the first western entrepreneurs and investment bankers to do business in China, this exciting tale makes you hold your breath, hoping for fortune but risking it all, taking the same gamble facing every business person visiting the Middle Kingdom since Marco Polo. "Reality is disappointing, Jack," the book explains. "China is better." Joining me this afternoon to talk about his epic work is of course the author of China Fortunes John D. Kuhns.
