Synopsis

The compelling story of one man, one company and one country.



If you are interacting with Chinese businesses, doing business in China, hoping to understand more about this incredible country, or simply wanting to see what can be achieved through passion, commitment, and integrity, this is the book for you. Unlocking the Emperor's Door documents the life of a man who has been at the heart of Chinese innovation for decades, whose story shows how small things matter, how big risks pay off, and how business and government intertwine in China.



Demonstrating the impact of vision and persistence, you will meet Li Jinyuan, the founder and Chairman of Tiens Group - known locally as Tianshi - and uncover his story of success. You will gain profound insights into the people of China, including its younger generation - and better understand the nation which is driving the World economy.

Set against the stunning backdrop of modern China, this rags to riches tale of triumph over tragedy, restless adaptation, and individual courage in a complex system, reveals truths about business in China that are vitally relevant today and will be essential tomorrow.
