Was hoping for an informative analysis of Xi Jinping's approach to governance and the accomplishments and challenges facing China in the 21st century. Instead it reads like a party-hack authored and approved Paen to The Great Leader more reminiscent of Cold War era communist pap. Having been a student of China for many years I should have known better but was expecting more.

The eyes of the world are upon China. China has lifted 1 billion people out of poverty, equivalent to the population of Africa, in just the last two decades. During this time period, China has also created the world's largest market of 300 million middle and upper class consumers with money to spend to improve their lives.

And China is just getting started. Premier Xi has made it his number one priority to add more than 200 million people to China's middle and upper class --creating a market for goods and services of 500 million consumers with money to spend--about twice the size of current United States market of 250 million consumers. This book, which I just received, contains English essays written by Premier Xi over the last 30 years and, more than anything else, tells how he thinks and where he comes from. I doubt this is of interest to most consumers, but if you do business in China, or follow economics or public policy, you need the book because, frankly, it's all there is on the man now leading the world's fastest growing (and soon the largest) economy.

The fact that Premier Xi sends his only daughter to attend college in the United States (under an assumed name) speaks volumes of what this great leader thinks of the U.S.--and bodes well for world peace as China and the U.S. have many of the same interests on most political issues.

It is a collection of speeches, so don't expect anything great writing-wise because that was obviously not the intention. Admittedly, it does diminish from the book as a good read. Importantly, however, it does reveal on some level the thoughts of Xi Jinping and where the CCP is heading. I consider those insights important. The question is whether the words will be matched by deeds. Xi's crackdown on corruption reveals that, so far, he is a man of his word.

The other reviewer is clearly an NSA plant paid to give the impression that Xi Jinping, or "Uncle Eleven" as he is known by his fans in the Indian subcontinent, is paying shills to promote his book. Shame on you CIA, aren't you busy enough orchestrating the Hong Kong riots?

I, on the other hand, have read this book cover to cover eight times, and can safely say that is it hands down Her (Xi's, she's get it?) best book ever. For this reason I am giving it the top ranking of First Star.

President Jinping speaks simplified Mandarine far better than any of his predecessors, and this shows in his prose, peppered with quotes from Chinese philosophers such as Confucius, Mencius, Xunzi, and his personal favorite, Han Fei. He also refers frequently to Communist philosophers with Chinese characteristics, such as Chairman Mao, Deng "Little Bottle" Ping, revolutionary heroes Lei Feng and Wang Jinxi, and for balance he even throws in a joke about the recently purged Bo Xilai. Without giving away the punchline, it involves a couple of guests at a Chinese reeducation facility discussing the fall of the infamous Princeling. Really hilarious, side-splitting stuff!

70% cutting political insight, 30% wit, The Governance of China is a must read for Old China Hands and Tim Budong fobs alike. It's a gripping page-turner the likes of which we haven't seen from China's leaders since The Little Red Book, and I for one look forward to the sequel The Governance of the World.

many Chinese people outside the inner circle of CCP has difficulties in understanding the terms and literature of the party, no mention the foreigners. while this book is one of the eastist to comprehend because Xi prefers to make his words simple enough for the ordinary Chinese people. Xi is the single most powerful person in the world today, and according to his speeches and signals, he is very ambitious in changing China into something very different from what it looks like today. For those who seriously interested in understanding China's new road in the coming decade, this book is a must read.

I am a real person in Madison, WI. I purchased this book in China last month and read it. It should be taken as a masterful attempt to convey what Xi Jinping wants the world to think about him. In his own political context, he is likely to become the Chinese Ronald Reagan -- he is determined to fight waste, fraud and abuse. He speaks in terms ordinary Chinese people can understand and support. He wants to bring China into the modern era without westernizing.

The content of th book is amazing. President Xi honors Chairman Mao, but states flatly that Mao made serious mistakes, notably the Vultural Revolution. Much of the line being advanced in this book would have been treason before 1976. Follow the history and connect the dots and you'll see that China is returning to Confucianism as their way of disciplining capitalism. An important book which, if widely read, could prevent another arms race.
