Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Anyone considering doing business with China or investing in Chinese companies may find Li’s book to have relevant insight into the business culture of China. A successful equity analyst and founder of an equity research firm, the self-proclaimed “tiger woman of Wall Street” has the unique perspective of having been raised in China and college educated in the U.S., and she shares her experience and observations of Chinese culture’s impact on its business environment and her opinions on the economic stability of China. A mixture of autobiography and economics, the book is a warning to those considering investing in China to look past the growth potential and do the investigative research required to make an informed decision. It illustrates China’s weak corporate governance and questionable business ethics through examples of fraud by Chinese companies including Longtop and Sino-Forest. Li advises against a top-down approach to stock selection in China because of the inaccuracy of reported data and alerts investors to China-specific risks. She believes the Chinese growth model has stalled, and an eventual economic crash is inevitable. --Cindy Kryszak

Review

“[The book] moves seamlessly between autobiography and analysis to create a finely chiseled portrait of the often shadowy Chinese business world. It's an important read for anyone interested in investing in China, or in companies that have a Chinese presence.” (SeekingAlpha.com)

A very compelling read indeed. Many similarities with old-new China & India & in my context I could visualize where India would be in next few years & what problems would arise.

Your personal tale & connecting it with your professional work gives diverse perspectives. The struggles of yours are highly motivational.

With 2 kids and having moved them recently from Japan (IB schooling) to India (local schooling), we as parents are struggling as to which route to take - and your last chapter actually convinced me to choose something that we believed.

Lastly you have explained some financial concepts very simply and overall kept the tone of the book practical(not advisory).

I think this book should be localized in various languages -especially in emerging markets. It is like listening to somebody who has seen the future while still having the time to act on it.

Absolutely a great read and wish all the best.

This book is really good. Not only does Junheng Li give a run down of how she invests, but she uses a sensible approach while investing. She examines how to analyze a company, its operations, its financial statements and various other important factors when making an investment decision. This book is an important one that I will recommend.

Junheng Li weaves an acutely observed, unsentimental yet poignant narrative
of her journey growing up in the aftermath of China's Cultural Revolution, thriving
in its cutthroat educational regime, then graduating at the top of
her class at Middlebury College and decamping to Wall Street to ultimately
compete successfully with some of the world's leading hedge funds.

Along the way, you'll find yourself charmed by her return visit to Grandma
Yangyang, amused by her savvy observations on China's "Mistress Economy" and
its implications for the world's leading luxury marques and nodding your
head throughout at the woefully compromised labors of many denizens of Wall
Street agencies.

Knowledge is power and Ms. Li lays out her strategies to elicit "tells" from
CEOs and ferret out anomalies from obscure datasets you won't find anytime
soon on Bloomberg. If you seek alpha in emerging markets - or your own
backyard for that matter, Ms. Li's disciplined and relentless application of clever and
near-forensic analysis makes this a must read.

This is an amazing biography and personal story of how Junheng Li struggled through the setbacks of China's Cultural Revolution in the 60s, brought up under a strict father, fought through multiple challenges in her growing up years, came to America to study, to work, and subsequently to make a huge impact on the investment industry, especially in the area of providing deeper insights about American strategies and Chinese peculiarities in social, political, economic, and other tangible relationships. Richly personal and highly informative, Li (known in the book as Junh) shares her journey from China to America, and how she gleans the best of Chinese discipline and diligent, and the American way of freedom and democracy. Positioning herself as a Wall Street strategist and investment analyst with feet on both Western and Eastern awareness, Li aims to use her own story to help business people (especially from the West) to do business in China.

Li brings to us an up-front-and-personal view of Wall Street and its day to day dealings, as well as an insightful and shrewd take on Shanghai and the culture in China. She highlights her early years of how her family survived China's modern but cruel "Cultural Revolution." She shares the roots of her tenacity that was developed since young, like having to up her TOEFL scores from 480 to 600 in three months. She reveals how her questioning of the norm sharpens her acumen for short-selling opportunities. At the same time, she candidly writes about her boo-boos such as her dozing off when an important client was speaking as well as her failed marriage. Even her company, Aurarian, a small investment firm had to call it quits at the height of the 2009 financial crisis.

The book is an extremely well written chronicle of the authors life from childhood to the present. She chronicles her childhood and educational upbringing in fascinating detail with the impact of being bought under a strict disciplinarian particularly disturbing.

Though she expounds on her discipline , hard work ethic and ability to overcome many obstacles the book drifts towards an empty rhetoric on the assessment of the financial risks on china. It is thin on details, empty on detailed assessments and rehashes details that is already been chronicled elsewhere in the news.

Other reviews hyped the book as a substantive read on the financial risks associated with china and the book is empty on that score. Would not recommend buying the book if you want to really understand how to assess the risks in china.however it is worth reading if you want to get an insight into life and growing up in contemporary china
