The billions of entrepreneurs book was very informative.

The billions of entrepreneurs book was very informative. This book is really a comparison between the history and current positioning of India and China. I really enjoyed learning the history of the two nations and how they compare against each other. From Buddha to software, the cooperation of China and India is necessary.

In Billions of Entrepreneurs, Tarun Khanna examines the entrepreneurial forces driving China's and India's trajectories of development. He shows where these trajectories overlap and China and India are home to one-third of the world's population. And they're undergoing social and economic revolutions that are capturing the best minds-and money-of Western business.

Although the claim of "billions" of entrepreneurs is a bit much, there is no denying that both China and India are now at last having success in advancing their economies and that a driving force in their economic growth is their private sectors.

"Khanna has written an objective and insightful comparison of China and India. His analysis of Indian developments is particularly outstanding, because it is based on his firsthand experiences in India. But he does not hold back in his praise of Chinese successes. The result is a very fair-minded report on the two Asian giants."-- Foreign Affairs"Khanna delivers a dense but lively blend of anecdotes and analysis. He shows how entrepreneurial spirit is transforming both these countries not only economically, but strengthening ties between the two." -- NewsweekMuch attention is being paid to business opportunity in China and India, the world's most populous nations.

Being born and raised in India, married in the US to my beloved who is orignially from China, and currently living and raising our two kids in China for the last several years, I have had the opportunity to observe a lot of what this book talks about in an up-close and personal way. While I am impressed by the amount of research and effort that has obviously gone into this book, I am ultimately disappointed by the author's inability to transcend his own biases and the tendency to measure everything from what may be best called a "Western" viewpoint. The author's understanding of India is clearly much superior than his familiarity with China. China is a notoriously difficult onion to peel and I'm afraid the author does not get beyond a couple of outer layers. As a result, while the book has some interesting anecdotes and some valiant attempts at analysis, it fails in providing an objective and genuinely insightful comparison of the two countries and cultures. I found particularly galling the failure to adequately examine areas of radically different performance of the two nations in areas such as literacy, general health and nutrition, gender equality, social harmony, facility with the physical world, success in organized sports, and many other areas where China is outpacing India. There are some salient reasons for the differences, but you won't find them in this book. What analysis does exist, I would rate as average at best.

For those interested in understanding China and India and indeed Asia more deeply, I would recommend much more highly the work of Kishore Mahbubani, Dean of the Lee Kwan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore.

The billions of entrepreneurs book was very informative. This book is really a comparison between the history and current positioning of India and China. I really enjoyed learning the history of the two nations and how they compare against each other. Another aspect of the book that was very surprising, was the history of India being under British rule and that the U.S. started the same way - so why don't we spend more time understanding India than China? Aligning those ideas made me question for the first time, why do we focus on China so much? These salient points and others made the book worth reading.

I was in the US for a few days and ordered the book "Billions of Entrepreneurs". There was a short wiondow to receive the book at my hotel adress. I was promised the book for a set date and it arrived just that day. An exchange of email with the seller was promptly replied.
This is customer service !

Good account of history and context. Well researched. Great book for those trying to learn more about India and China. Impressive...

But, one thing dismayed me - it was the number of typos, calculation mistakes and grammatical errors! Poor job of editing.

This is a curious book, not really about entrepreneurship but rather about a broad range of cultural, social, historical and economic subjects involving and contrasting China and India, from 1.5 billion village dwellers to urbanites in Beijing and Mumbai. Tarun Khanna's text is part travelogue, part reflection, part history and part speculation about the future. Anyone who has read to any depth about China and India will not find all that much that is surprising here. However, getAbstract recommends this book with enthusiasm because of its nearly unique richness of anecdotes, variety of perspectives, color and range.

A great book to show the contrast between the two countries. India is a democratic society and China is controlled by the central and provicial government. Yet there are more news of China daily in American media.

China is efficient, with good engineers, hardware infrastructure. India is transparent, accountable, and with soft power. China government can complete projects over night, but the same project will take years to complete in India. India railways, 1.6 million employees, inefficient. China Shanghai Pudong airport, Maglev train, magnetic levitation, German tech, constructed in a short time.

I love the many personal accounts from the author. Through his in-depth interview, he got the primary source of data. Machimmar Village Dharavi slum coexists with the Ambani billionaires, only in India. Red Princes (sons and daughters) of China Communist Party ruled everything in China. While in India, it is done by consensus, just like USA.

The winning in the market place of National Stock Exchange over Bombay Stock Exchange, Weihua Group (China) success, Self Employed Women Association (India) The failure of Microsoft in China, TCL global stumble, Hukou registration system, GE Healthcare and GE Medical success stories make this book a compelling read.

Caste (India) has four levels:
a. Brahmins: the priest, teacher, philosopher for education and religion
b. Kshatriya or warrior class: kings, and defense governors
c. Vaisyas: traders for agriculture and commerce
d. Sudras: serve the above three

Dr. Devi Shetty, Walmartization of Healthcare, at Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital is amaging, like Mother Teresa reborn!

The problem of Chinese Health services was severe. 640 million Chinese received no health insurance coverage.

Huge investment in Burma was made, from Chinese top three oil firms: Chinese National Petroleum Corporation, Sinopec, and CNOOC. Now the top three are in Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Angola, and Nigeria.

1962 China India war was due to boarder issues. It was a set back for India. But a minor event in China.

In 2003, 3.6 billion people watched 1100 Bollywood movies, compared with 2.6 billions attended 600 Hollywood firms.

A quote from Jawaharlal Nehru, India and China fly over the mountain to bring their messages of cheer and goodwill and creat bonds of friendship that will endure. From Buddha to software, the cooperation of China and India is necessary.

At Singapore, Chinese is 77%, Indian 10%, rest Malay. It has been a success, while the Chinese and Indians worked together. The question is, will the two countries work together going forward?
