Praise for Poorly Made in China "This fast-paced travelogue through the world of Chinese manufacturing is scary, fascinating, and very funny. Midler is not only a knowledgeable guide to the invisible underbelly of the global economy, he is a sympathetic and astute observer of China, its challenges, and its people. A great read."
--Pietra Rivoli, author of The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy
"Paul Midler takes us for a ride through the fastest-growing economy in the world, revealing what can--and sometimes does--go wrong when U.S. companies shift production to China. Working in the heart of China's export hub, in the country's southern region, he has the advantage of a front-row seat to the no-holds-barred games played between manufacturers and importers. He introduces us to a cast of real-life characters and tells his story with a mix of affection and skepticism for what is taking place in China today. Midler delivers a revealing and often funny tale of life and commerce in a country whose exports touch nearly everyone on the planet."
--Sara Bongiorni, author of A Year Without 'Made in China'

Read information about the authorMy books are to some extent autobiographical, and so details on my life and career are easily discovered. I spent more than two decades living and working in East Asia, working as a go-between in China manufacturing.
"Poorly Made in China" was first published in 2009 and it covers the boom in export manufacturing which began with the end of SARS and which ended (or took a pause at least) with the arrival of the global financial crisis in 2007. The book has done incredibly well as far as business books go, selling over 50,000 copies in hard cover and paperback.
"What's Wrong with China" is my latest. It applies a broader lens to China. The book includes plenty of anecdotes from manufacturing, but this time there are more general observations from a life lived in China. There are also many historical references. While I am proud of both books, I feel this second one is a better book. But what do I know!
