Long treasured by those who seek personal and spiritual enlightenment, the truths and wisdom contained within classic Chinese tales also have much to offer those who seek excellence in today's business world. Born in Shanghai, Michael Tang spent his youth poring over Chinese classics, from the Intrigues of the Warring States to the Tales of the Song Dynasty, from the Chronicles of Three Kingdoms to the History of the Ming Empire. Working in corporate America, he discovered the practical value of these revered ancient tales.In this collection, Tang brings together over one hundred Chinese fables, each featuring a thought-provoking and inspiring message directly relevant to achieving business success today. These brief, engaging tales offer practical lessons on leadership, management, competitive strategy, organizational behavior, human relations, ethics, family values, emotional intelligence, career management -- even love and sex. A treasure trove of embedded wisdom, the volume will also delight readers with its elegant package. The author's father, Qingan Tang, has added beautiful calligraphy to enhance the fables' wisdom.

Born in Shanghai and educated at the London School of Economics and Harvard Business School, venture-capital investment manager Michael Tang has been shaped by both the legends of his native land and the realities of his chosen world. In A Victor's Reflections, he presents dozens of legends along with succinct commentary (on how they apply to our modern-day business life) that are based upon realities. Tang offers a slight twist on the tendency in the current crop of books to link management advice with the activities of a specific leader or era by expanding his scope to the entire roster of great Chinese figures, including Confucius, sixth-century scholar Yen Chi-tui, the Art of War's Sun Tzu, third-century ruler Tsao Tsao, and many others. In sections discussing issues ranging from ethics and human resources to sexual harassment and "the art of living," Tang presents brief, contemporary fables that illuminate the classic precepts around which the Chinese have rallied for thousands of years. With morals like "One cannot lead without loyalty" and "A symbol can be a powerful management tool," the stories, and Tang's assessments, are both enjoyable and instructive. --Howard RothmanAbout the Author:
