“Rebecca Fannin recently crisscrossed China to gauge its digital prospects and the dynamism of its computer-based economy. As she reports in “Silicon Dragon, she spotted a clutch of up-and-coming entrepreneurs and heard echoes of Redwood Drive in places like Beijing’s Zhongguancun high-tech district. And little wonder. China’s Steve Jobs wannabes are desperately trying to make up for lost time.”(The Wall Street Journal)
I would strongly suggest picking this up if the subject matter is of interest, you'll be happy you did.
Another book that I recommend regarding China Investments would be Winston Ma's "Investing in China: New Opportunities in a Transforming Stock Market".
A well written, well documented, fascinating peek into the hearts and minds of China's economic thought leaders.
