"Surprising insights...The authors ably demonstrate how the once-countercultural practice of capitalism in China remains unlike the variety practiced in the West. Full of object lessons, this is a valuable overview for students of international commerce."
"A lively exploration of the Chinese way of doing business."
"Fortune Makers chronicles how a new brand of Chinese business leaders have thrown off the shackles of the Cultural Revolution and State-owned enterprises to lead aggressive private companies into the global business arena. The authors-Cappelli, Liang, Singh and Useem-provide a fascinating glimpse what makes these CEOs and the companies they lead tick, while sounding an alarm bell for all those Western competitors that will need to up their game to be successful in the future. This is a book that should be required reading for anyone conducting international business inside or outside of China."—Arthur D. Collins, Jr., former Chairman and CEO of Medtronic, Inc., and Managing Partner, Acorn Advisors, LLC
"Fortune Makers provides an extremely interesting perspective on a new breed of global companies with roots in China. As the chief marketing officer of Lenovo for four years, I had the unique privilege to observe and engage in the operations of one such company. Made me a huge believer in the massive impact companies like Lenovo will continue to make on the global stage. To understand how China's great private companies are being directed and led, this is the book to read."
