'Carl Crow's story of rags to riches to rags again set against the turbulent history of Shanghai makes for a gripping read. As a newshound, businessman, writer and entrepreneur, Crow's insights into China's modernization - and Western fantasies about the China market - are as fresh and illuminating as they were at the time. This is much more than a biography but brings together the whole story of Shanghai's rise and fall. The book is full of vivid details and amusing and sometimes sad stories which anyone interested in Shanghai's future and its past will enjoy.'
