  • App Store Info


► "The China Success Guide is a very practical guide like no others, full of tips and DOs-and-DON'Ts."

► "The China Success Guide" is essentially a reflection of the author's pits and falls and his learning for the past 10 years in China. They form this present App, which should help and better equip the first-time travelers to China, market development managers/entrepreneurs wanting to do business, establish themselves and live in China.

► The objective of writing "The China Success Guide” was to collate all the bits and pieces of the facets needed to cut down the reader's learning curve. The author has put in a considerable amount of effort to structure "The China Success Guide” and collate the information in an easy, useful and fun-to-read format. Although there is a considerable amount of data available on the Internet on which one can relate to, it is all scattered, and one would require months to collate the information compiled in "The China Success Guide."

► While reading "The China Success Guide,” the reader will realize that the information is detailed at the "grass-root level." That is one of the critical success factors to live and work in China, as opposed to reading a magazine on China while flying first class, and then advising team members on how to do business in China.

► "The China Success Guide" goes beyond what a traditional books offers. It includes internet links to major websites about China, direct Tap-to-Call (Tap-to-Store on iPad), Direct-Email, and numerous pictures.

► "The China Success Guide" also comprehends a full searchable English/Chinese dictionary with over 1800 words.
