"This is almost certainly the best survey of official views on China’s financial overhauls published in English… 

This collection is a good bookshelf companion for bankers and investors actively participating in China’s markets. It’s also a handy cheat sheet for those who have an upcoming meeting with Chinese officials and want to understand their views."
