San Diego, California (PRWEB) August 9, 2008
As the eyes of the world focus on the Olympic Games in Beijing, so too will Americans and Chinese alike have many questions about the future social, economic and political ties between the two superpowers.
The major questions: Can America ever regain jobs lost to China? Is China a threat to U.S. national security? What are China's major problems in becoming the dominant world power? What are America's major problems in remaining a dominant world power? How do Chinese and American teens differ in their motivations? Their education? Their grasp of technology? What are the "pros" and "cons of the two cultures? What does the future look like for China and America?
Best-selling author and authority on high performance behavior, Denis Waitley, tackles these issues and more in a light-hearted, parable, featuring a series of fictional conversations between a giant dragon and an Ameican eagle, symbolizing the two countries. If you enjoyed "Who Moved My Cheese," you'll be fascinated by this revealing, provocative tale which combines the reality for Americans of "Who Moved my Job?" with the staggering upheaval in Chinese life, which could be likened to "Who Moved My Chopsticks."
The Dragon and The Eagle distills this knowledge into an invaluagle primer for business people, tourists, government leaders, politicians, students, teachers and anyone with a curiosity about the differences between American and Chinese life. It is unique in its editorial style, and is one of the only mass market books to include both English and Chinese versions withing the same cover.
Denis Waitley is the author of fifteen, non-fiction books including global bestsellers Seeds of Greatness and Being the Best. Most recently, he was a contributing author for the phenomenal N.Y. Times' best-selling book and DVD, The Secret. His audio program, The Psychology of Winning," is the most-listened-to-program in the world on self-mastery.
One of the most sought-after keynote speakers and lecturers by multi-national coporations, he has studied leaders in every field from Apollo astronauts to "Fortune 500" top executives, from Superbowl champions to heads of state. During the 1980s, he served as chairman of psychology for the U. S. Olympic Committee's Sports Medicine Council, responsible for the performance enhancement of all American Olympic athletes.
