What the Critics Say

"I was impressed by new audio company Creative Content�s offerings. In a world where business is so global, they focus on helping businesspeople make the most of their negotiations by making them aware of the way to behave in the country they�re in. THE LOWDOWN: BUSINESS ETIQUETTE CHINA (Creative Content, download only, £5.99 is read by Lorelei King and Trevor White and clearly explains the Chinese philosophy of doing business and their attitudes to �face� (mianzi) and �networking� (guanxi). There�s information on what to do and what not to do in meetings, why colours and numbers are important in Chinese culture and how to deal with social invitations. In a world where �respect� has become almost a dirty word, this is a timely reminder that a little of it can go a long way in helping the world turn beneficially. BUSINESS ETIQUETTE RUSSIA is in the same series. Load onto your iPod and travel well!"(Daily Express Reviewer)
