"Henry M. Paulson, Jr., former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and CEO of Goldman Sachs, delivers a behind-the-scenes account of China's rise as an economic superpower. When Hu Jintao, China's then vice president, came to visit the New York Stock Exchange and Ground Zero in 2002, he asked Hank Paulson to be his guide. It was a testament to the pivotal role that Goldman Sachs played in helping China experiment with private enterprise. In DEALING WITH CHINA, the bestselling author of On the Brink draws on his unprecedented access to both the political and business leaders of modern China to answer several key questions: How did China become an economic superpower so quickly? Who really runs China? How does business get done there? What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to engage, compete, and beat China? How can Western investors profit in China?"-- Provided by publisher.
"DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution of China's state-controlled capitalism"-- Provided by publisher.

The history of Mr Paulson’s involvement in China has clearly been written very carefully to avoid giving offence ( except in the case of one single individual who appears to be a fugitive after being convicted of a $1billion corruption charge - presumably a safe target). However one can still get a clear picture of the abilities of the senior personnel that Paulson dealt with in the Chinese government, and the conditions under which they operate in terms of the pollitical pressures and need for concensus.
This leads into the mandatory section on policy recommendations, which are rapidly becoming a major issue for the global economy and stability.
A very pleasant surprise was finding just how engaged Mr Paulson is in environmental activities through his non profit foundation, a totally unexpected aspect of the life of a very successful financial figure, and a republican at that.
I doubt that either the title or sub-title would have been Mr Paulson’s choice, both are unfortunate and misleading.

This book, rather than "unmasking the new economic superpower", exposes the author’s agenda. The narrative is a boring and tired form of diary where the Paulson recounts his days at Goldman Sachs and his tenure as US Secretary of Treasury.

If you want to get a concise view of how China operates, what are its ambitions and current strategies, just read Part Three, where all the important facts are condensed in six chapters. The narrative style of this chapter is so different from the other two that makes me wonder if it was wrote by the same Henry M. Paulson: its more concise, direct and fluid. All other parts (one and two) are mere recounts of personal and political agendas that provide little insight into China.

Author skillfully saved USA from Wall Street abusers. Author knows China both as Goldman executive and US Sec Treasury. Listen to Paulson.
