    1. Oh, to be China in 2010, object of the world’s envy, admiration, and fear. Since the economic reforms of the late premier Deng Xiaoping in the 1980s, the country has gone from a relatively isolated authoritarian state into a shining triumph of socialist-market economics. At present rates of growth, it will be the world’s largest economy by the middle of this century, overtaking the United States and achieving a GDP above $14 trillion per year — a significant first.The question of how China [...]


    2. China’s Megatrends, The 8 Pillars of a New SocietyJohn and Doris NaisbittHarper Collins, 2010Opinions about this book fall into two very separate categories, those who see in it an explanation of how China has achieved such great change in a short time, and those who see it as merely propaganda for the government.Here is are the Chapter titles:Emancipating the MindBalancing Top-Down and Bottom-UpFraming the Forest and Letting the Trees GrowCrossing the River by Feeling the StonesArtistic and I [...]


    3. Positive viewpoint on how far China has travelled Futurist John Naisbitt was never one for understatement, and that holds true with this sweeping book on China. His early works broke ground and brought provocative ideas to light. This book, written with his wife, Doris Naisbitt, is less revolutionary. With warm enthusiasm, the authors present a comprehensive, generous compilation of eight major forces shaping China. They explain China’s politics simply and straightforwardly, with a generous do [...]


    4. This was just an OK book; the insights into the Chinese "megatrends" were not that impressive, and the book overall was fairly repetitive and said a lot of things I've heard before many times. What was interesting, though, was the highly positive westerner's view of China's progress. Naisbitt has spent a lot of time in China over the past several decades, and also has a lot of knowledge of business and economics in the west. So John Naisbitt is hardly a naive babe in the woods. But he has a high [...]


    5. Facts and no framing, inside out view, 8 pillars are liberate people and build on trust, top down and bottom up vertical democracy, frame forrest let trees grow, crossing river by feeling stones, artistic and intellectuals, joining the world, freedom and fairness, innovation. Promotional for sure, the arrows to the boat story, singular party is less confrontational and less competitive and innovative (friction can refine and perfect). Self confidence for effective self assessment. Character is r [...]


    6. Very interesting learning about the up and coming world power. I keep thinking John Nesbitt seems to be leaving out much criticism and speaks only very favorably, no one does it right all the time. What does this mean about what he is saying?There is lots of good information about the modern China, but I was disappointed in the lack of facts. You should read this because all Americans need to know more about China, Megatrends is only a beginning. I hope to get to read a book mentioned several ti [...]


    7. Covers a lot of bases on China's growth and future plans, and has a lot of little-known facts about different individuals, companies, and groups that became successful in China's opening up process. It was a little TOO positive, however, and just when I thought the authors were going to address some of the issues China will need to work on to maintain sustainable growth, they turned it into an opportunity to talk about history between Tibet, Taiwan, and Tiananmen.China's Megatrends probably won' [...]


    8. Interesting observations on the social and political changes in China today, but not groundbreaking as his Megatrends was. Nether academic nor fluffy, the book is just a bit too "friendly" to the Chinese political machine, continually trying to justify it. Naisbitt and his wife/coauthor, have, however identified what has chaged China into the superpower that it's becomming.A good read if you're into Chinese politics and economics.


    9. Apa yang muncul di benak Anda ketika mendengar "Cina"? Panda? Film terbaru dari novel Asma Nadia? Atau komunis? Sebelum membaca buku ini, kepala saya sempat terjangkit beberapa dogma negatif tentang Cina karena paradigma saya adalah dari luar yang melihat ke Cina. Tapi buku ini mampu memperlihatkan bagaimana kah Cina jika dilihat dari dalam Cina itu sendiri. Selamat menyeimbangkan opini. High recommended one! :)



    10. A very interesting book by John Naisbitt on China. This book provides similar insights into China and the various drivers that will impact it's future as the original Megatrends book about America written in the 70's.


    11. Must read John grew up in the US Lived in Europe and decided to move to ChinaThat explains more than words are able to.


    12. Mostly echoing the Chinese government, which is no surprise considering author's close relationship with it and his stake in China.
