Noodles And Portals

I am so enjoying this book Made In China: What Western Managers Can Learn From Trailblazing Chinese Entrepreneurs by Donald Sull with Yong Wang.

I'll be reviewing it for Worthwhile Magazine's July issue (sounds so far off, doesn't it?) but it's available in early June for all of you folks who don't want to wait to hear what I have to say in print.

Both stories of how the company Ting Hsin broke through into the Chinese ramen noodle market and how Sina Corp knocked InfoHighway out of the top spot in the portal business in China are real page-turners. I'm only half-way through but it gets better and better.
