Product description

In late 2006, Martyn Habgood's work as an interim manager threw him suddenly into China, a completely alien environment. Over the next six years he would undertake a further three assignments there, managing in a different business culture, as well as getting involved in wedding ceremonies, experiencing magnificent scenery, learning local travel habits and trying foods he could probably have done without. This collection of his e-mails home provides a fascinating and often very funny perspective on a unique and rapidly-changing country.
