Some contents towards the drawback of China development model are fairly good. But the question is not been answered fully. Many problems exist in almost every counties.

Required reading for my MBA program. Decent read-ability. Ultimately I didn't feel that the authors were successful truly making their point on why China can't lead.

"A frog in a well cannot discuss the ocean." ~Chuang Tzu

A professor from Wharton and two from HBS attempt to approach China's geopolitical and macroeconomic status from the view of Business School Case Studies...

This is a novel approach. On a visceral level, I tend to agree with their conclusions. However, I find their assumptions and their methodology wanting. This could be a very interesting complementary method of analysis, but on its own they are but Chuang Tzu's frog.

The authors have fair and board coverage of the challenges that China is facing. The key argument is about the 're-balancing'. As the authors are targeting to business people so their focus is not in depth about the China's future (but they have done good coverage on the macro environment) but what the key issues a corporate leaders should ask / alert when doing business in PRC

An insightful book about modern China by three experienced educators. I largely agree with their conclusions about the opportunities and challenges facing China. But far from a great book. The authors' experience is largely academic rather than practical, and there are a number of small, careless factual errors that suggest the book was written hastily.

The book is analytical , well researched and provides an opinion on china. Can it lead? read the book and you would gain an insight to the views of the authors.

this book is for foreigners who are not familiar with China and wants to understand more about the country.

It provide little extra values for people who are well connected with the country.
