Co-authored by two “China Insiders”—one Western; the other, Chinese—both veteran business executives who have been working in China for over 25 years, Inside the Chinese Mind: A Guide on How the Chinese Think focuses on how the Chinese think conceptually, culturally, and practically, and how this relates and applies to contemporary China. The book is built around a central, balanced theme—to decipher why the Chinese behave in a certain manner when it comes to business dealings and working with foreigners. The book reveals the five core elements of Chinese thinking—Chinese language; the law of yin and yang; Chinese connectedness; midstream living; and mianzi (face)—that are fundamentally different from the West. It then takes the readers through these differences, particularly in the areas of leadership, work ethics, communication, conflict resolution, and intellectual property, which are crucial to the non-Chinese.
