    1. توقعته أفضل من ذلك، المعلومات عشوائية للغاية وبها الكثير من التكرارالجزء الأخير عن تأثر الولايات المتحدة واقتصادها بصعود اقتصاديات الهند والصين هو الأفضل.


    2. A very readable, but meticulously researched look at the growth of India and China and the particular challenges each faces as they become more integrated with the global economy. Meredith highlights how much China and India are changing the global economic and political landscape and argues that if America does not keep up by investing in mathematics, science and research, improving its educational system and providing better safety nets for those who will inevitably lose their jobs to China an [...]



    3. كتاب رائع بكل المقاييس لاسيما ترجمته العربية الاحترافية جداًيفسر الكتاب بأسلوب سلس لايخلو من المرح ظاهرة صعود كل من الفيل (الهند) والتنين (الصين) في الاقتصاد العالمي ومقارنة عوامل وخصائص صعود كل منهما والآثار المترتبة على ذلك سواء لشعوبهما أو لشعوب الدول الغربية وعلى رأسها [...]

    5. This book is a fascinating look into the social, political, and economic histories of The World's Producer (China, the dragon) and The World's Back Office (India, the elephant), and their relation to The World's Consumer (the U.S.). The author is the Forbes magazine correspondent for India and China, and seems to have a remarkable grasp on those two very different countries' histories, cultures, and interactions with the world. The author also looks to the future and predicts what will happen wh [...]


    6. This is a good book to read after "The WalMart Effect" to get a perspective on world economy and changing economic stability. China's transformation came through taking advantage of the hoards of cheap labor to manufacture or assemble products; while India has managed to create a remarkable industry of computer software developers and call centers. How these transformations came about, what effect they have had and are having on both the US and the local economies in those countries, and what th [...]


    7. An excellent introduction to the role of India and China in the globalized world, this book provided many insights into how America might be able to respond to the growth of two rising stars. I liked the personal visits to factories and slums in India and China, because they illustrated the story best, but the book itself was at times slow with too many percentages and statistics given; however, overall I enjoyed the book, and found it very informative and definitely a conversation-starter.


    8. علي الرغم من عدم تحقق كل التوقعات المتفائلة للكتاب , الا أنه يشرح بشكل شيق صعود الهند والصين ونموهم المفاجيء بتفاصيل شيقة ومهمة, ترجمة مميزة كالمعتاد لشوقي جلال


    9. "An exciting and journalistic account of one of the great economic stories of our time" - Joseph E. stiglitz, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics.This is a must read for all Americans. The change of India from a socialialist country to a more capitalistic country that is becoming the back office for American companies and the change of China from a communist country under Mao to a capitalistic country that has become the manufacturing plant for American companies is impacting all Americans.Th [...]


    10. In the streets of India, camels pull carts loaded with construction materials, and monkeys race across roads, dodging cars. In China, men in Mao jackets pedal bicycles along newly built highways, past skyscrapers sprouting like bamboo. Yet exotic India is as near as the voice answering an 800 number for one dollar an hour. Communist China is as close as the nearest Wal-Mart, its shelves full of goods made in Chinese factories.Not since the United States rose to prominence a century ago have we s [...]


    11. "The middle-aged, highly skilled white-collar workers are realizing, 'My job is gone and I'm not going to get it back.'" ~ Stephen Roach, Chief Economist for Morgan StanleyVery short on actual history - less than one paragraph was devoted to an off-handed recollection that both India and China have been dominant global economies for most of the last 500 years - but chock-full of factoids to pop off with at dinner parties, "Elephant and Dragon" is a very concise analysis of recent history with re [...]


    12. Excellent primer on Chindia, about the background of its history that paved the way for its staggering economic growth, and the entrenched social, political, and cultural structures that hinders its continuing development as well as presents opportunities for considerations in future economic planning. Even though India and China exist on semi-separate spheres in the book, they are case studies of how development on a national scale can be achieved in completely different ways, tailored to the c [...]


    13. This book covers some of the same material that is contained in the book, The World Is Flat. However, this book zeros in on India (the elephant) and China (the dragon) in more detail. It also spends more time reviewing the future difficulties that will need to be faced. But overall the book has an optimistic tone. Toward the end of the book it makes the case that international trade is a bargain for the USA. The book explains that for every dollar that goes overseas, $1.94 of wealth is created, [...]


    14. I learned so much about the global economy reading this book. It's important to understand the political, religious and economic backgrounds of the players involved in the global market, in order to understand and predict what may happen with future world trade and future jobs. Meredith does a good job giving us both the background and some predictions that may prove true. She helps one think on a global scale when trying to understand purchase power, economies, gross national product, job growt [...]


    15. Informative read on the re-emergence of two of the world's historic powers: India and China. Meredith provides a brief history on each and insight into the unique leaders, national characteristics, and philosophies that guided these two countries to the positions they are in today: China the factory to the world and India the back office to the world and especially the US. However, these roles are malleable and changing to suit the needs and influence of both countries in the next century, with [...]


    16. The first 6 chapters are more about the development history of China and India. It was a good refreshing for those who did not know about history. The last 3 chapters are more about comparing the two countries plus America. Robyn touches most parts about America and pointing out the parts why it might be fall behind China or India in one day. Learn so much about China, India, and America economic.


    17. Good overview This is a good overview of the economic changes going on in China and India. It lays out the challenges these countries present the United States and it offers possible solutions to these challenges without stooping to the demagoguery of the current election campaign.


    18. An easy to read book that is more like an article in the New York Times than a serious book. Excellent as a first book for someone who needs to know enough to not be left out of the conversation at the next harvard club lunch.


    19. This book answers the questions on regarding How the hell did everything turned to MADE IN CHINA overnight.A very elaborate book, highly recommended.


    20. This book was recommended to me by my manager and I was surprised at how good of a read it turned out to be. It presented a shockingly fair look at the good and bad that has come about with the economic rise of China and India. As I started reading it I had a bunch of questions regarding things I knew about the subject and all of them were actually addressed, which was nice because I got to bulk up my personal knowledge. One thing in particular I appreciate is the scaling of pay between wages fo [...]


    21. I unknowingly picked this book heavy on economy by assuming that I am picking a book on history or geopolitics. My reading experience- The author covers in depth about social, geopolitical, economical, and historical aspects of the subject of rise of India and China from a western perspective. She sprinkles humor throughout the book, and spices up with punchlines at right places. I really loved this about her writing style. Since it is about economics, it felt a little heavy and I would need to [...]


    22. Meredith appraises India and China's arrival and increasing role in the global economy, circa 2007. After an introductory chapter that explains why and how both powers began to move towards freer economies, Meredith then covers how the two nations' involvement in the global economy is shaping it and them. At risk of being simplistic, she refers to India as the world's 'office' and China as its factory, and uses them to illustrate the rise of off-shoring and the global supply chain. In our global [...]


    23. كتاب طويل يحكي قصة صعود الهند والصين مليء بالكثير من الأحداث والتفاصيل والأرقام التي جعلته مملا بشدة، لكن إجمالا الكتاب يشرح الكثير من تفاصيل العلاقات الاقتصادية وتشابكاتها بين الدول، وكيف أن سقوط دولة اقتصاديا قد يسقط دولة أخري تعتبر مستهلكة لمنتجات الدولة الثانية.مثال/ [...]


    24. A history, an economic primer and an editorial on what it all means. This book thoroughly covers the emergence of the Chinese and Indian economies onto the world stage. Both are embracing capitalism and with gusto and success. What this means to the world and to Americans is the central theme of this interesting book.


    25. Its a decent book. Its more like a documentary actually. The only problem is that the world has changed so much since July 2007 when this book was released that most of the content are not easy to put in context while looking at today. Although the historical facts provided are very useful in understanding the spark of growth. All an all its not book that you would want to read today.


    26. Well written, gives a well rounded perspective of how China and India can become the leading economies and geopolitical influencers in the next 20 years.




    27. Living in India or China, one can visualise the socio-economic changes described in the book over the past few decades.
