Essential reading for any company currently producing in China or contemplating the same.  Paul Midler (MBA – Wharton School of Business) shares incredibly valuable insights that could cost your company millions — read this book before you give away what’s in your wallet.

The nuances and realities that Midler shares were garnered through his life experiences working with a myriad of factories in China, and a vast array of European and American companies either producing there, or contemplating the same.
