China's Century: The Awakening of the Next Economic Powerhouse

Written by Peter Andresen from Salinas, CA on February 17th, 2005

  • Book Rating: 2/5

I can't disagree with the premise of this book. Certainly there is every indication that China will become the world's largest economy in the next few decades. And this book , which I reveiwed in audio form, offers occasional insight into the key questions surrounding China's ascendency. Yet this book is also as boring as watching a bucket of tap water. Better: "Mapping the Global Future", available through the US government's printing office.
