Praise for Li Ka-shing: Hong Kong's Elusive Billionaire

Anthony B. Chan, Li Ka-shing: Hong Kong’s Elusive Billionaire. Toronto: Macmillan, 1996, Hong Kong: Oxford University Press, 1996.

“This is one of the best selling books in Hong Kong.” *Nicholas Reynolds, South China Morning Post

“Li is the richest, most powerful man in Hong Kong and now he is poised to move into America.” *Kenneth Howe, San Francisco Chronicle

“Li Ka-shing: Hong Kong’s Elusive Billionaire is required reading for those who want to delve into the personality of one of the key players in one of Asia’s most historic moments.” *K.I. Woo, The Nation, Bangkok

“Chan is a competent journalist and a respected academic and the overall tone of the work reflects this. Li Ka-shing: Hong Kong’s Elusive Billionaire is a recommended read.” *Linda Richards, Vancouver Courier

“Chan views Li not as Hong Kong’s canary in the cage but as China’s hooded falcon.” *Ann Walmsley, Report on Business Magazine

“This book should be compulsory reading for those who want to understand the great business power developing in Asia and even more so for those many others who have not yet grasped its importance.” *Diana Lary, University of British Columbia, The Globe & Mail (cir: 330,030)

“(Chan) has translated the language of international commerce into an engaging read.” *Martin Cash, Winnipeg Free Press (cir: 144,000)

“(Chan) provides ample documentation of the historical and geographical context that made his (Li Ka-shing’s) success possible.” *John Givner, Quill & Quire (cir: 7,000)

“Chan’s book provides a useful examination of an important player in Hong Kong politics.” *Holly Porteous, Calgary Herald (cir: 118,862)

“Li Ka-shing: Hong Kong’s Elusive Billionaire is as much a chronicle of extraordinary economic events in the Pacific Rim as it is the biography of one man.”

*Colleen Leung, Vancouver Sun, The Whig Standard, Kingston, Ontario (cir: 29,333)
