I was impressed as a Chinese by the degree of insight the author has on the concept of Guanxi. Especially the fact he brought out that Guanxi is tbe special.

It exists in other aamerican. If you disagree, watch the Godfather I. You’ll have some clue. This allows the American to relate to what they already known in the US culture to understand the Chinese culture. The next step of understanding is reacting. This book has practical advices.

But because this is a pretty brief book, you would hope the author could have written more. I’ve been working on a thesis involving guanxi for my graduate degree and this book lead to many great points for further research, but broke the topic down into very palatable and understandable tidbits. An excellent introduction to doing business in China. Informative, easy to read and understand. A must read for any business considering a Chinese business relationship. Hopefully the author will be writing a more detailed and in depth version of this book.

I have been reading Andrew’s writings for years. I do so because he really knows China. This work is no different.

Smashwords – Guanxi for the Busy American – a book by Andrew Hupert

If you want a quick and dirty doing business in China book, this is the one. Solid fast read on the Guanxi concept. The book doesn’t pull punches in its assessment of the sinister aspects of China Guanxi nor Westerners’ ill-advised notions about it.

The Author’s blogs are well respected amongst “Old China Hands” –Nothing in this book was new to me after 17 years in China, but It was well worth the price for the nuance and practical, actionable suggestions toward the end bust the book. Pretty easy to read, light, humorous style, can be read in a couple of hours. As compared with a lot of the fluffy China business books out there, this book is quite solid. There’s really no reason anyone doing business in China shouldn’t pop 3 bucks for this.


I thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a book on the confusing subject of Guanxi. I’ve worked across Asia for a couple of decades and Mr.

Hupert provides the reader with an accurate, enjoyable explanation of Guanxi what it means, why it’s important, etc. This book is a must read for China hands old budy new.

I look forward to reading more books from Mr. Hupert as he’s clearly an emerging expert on conducting business in China. This book hits it on the head nicely.
