Editorial Reviews

Review

Fareed Zakaria's Book of the Week pick on his CNN show, GPS

"A perfect primer for anyone looking to do business in China."
--Fortune

"I will read anything Clay writes, but when he's writing about the intersection of Chinese manufacturing and the Western Internet, man, is that ever in my zone."
--Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Shirky accomplishes more in 128 pages than most books would in 1,000. LITTLE RICE is a company profile, industry narrative, country history lesson, political dissection (sometimes bordering on polemic), a review of the current state of globalization, and discussion of its future."
-- 800CEOReads

"Although the author’s technical competence is evident throughout this interesting book, his ideas are expressed in simple, clear language that should appeal to anyone with an interest in China, and not just those with a special interest in technology." —Lanxin Xiang, Survival: Global Politics and Strategy

"A compact, accessible, and intelligently delivered update on China's evolving economic and political front via one particularly accomplished electronics venture."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Shirky investigates the rise of the Xiaomi start-up culture...Recommended for those who enjoy reading about how mobile technology works and particularly in exploring its impact on global business."
--Library Journal

About the Author

Clay Shirky divides his time between consulting, teaching, and writing on the social and economic effects of Internet technologies. He is the author of two recent books on the subject, "Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age" (2010) and "Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations" (2008). He holds a joint appointment at New York University, as an associate arts professor at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) and as an associate professor in the journalism department. He is also a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and he was the Edward R. Murrow Visiting Lecturer at Harvard's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy in 2010. A graduate of Yale, his writing appears frequently in "The New York Times, Wired, The Wall Street Journal," and "Harvard Business Review," and his TED Talks have been viewed by millions. He lives in New York City.
