505 0  Even a beast like a thousand-pound ox must lower its head 
       to drink -- A tree may grow to a thousand feet, but the 
       leaves still return to their roots -- When the horse has 
       reached the edge of the cliff, it's too late to draw on 
       the reins -- Up in the sky there is paradise, but down on 
       the Earth we have Hangzhou -- The first Chinese rule: how 
       can we go so far as to change the regulations of the 
       Celestial Empire at the request of one man? -- Sacrifice 
       the plum tree in order to save the peach -- The second 
       Chinese rule: the long-divided shall unite, the long-
       united shall divide -- Learn from the past; seek truth 
       from facts -- The flowers on a liverwort may be as small 
       as a grain of rice, but they still want to blossom like a 
       peony -- The third Chinese rule: the art of war is of 
       vital importance for the state and should on no account be
       neglected -- When Master Jiang hangs out his hook, it's 
       the willing fish that gets caught -- Kill with borrowed 
       knife -- The fourth Chinese rule: cross the river by 
       feeling for the stones -- Who could say it was gain or 
       loss when the old man lost his horse? -- The fifth Chinese
       rule: know yourself and know the other and you'll survive 
       a hundred battles. 
520    From the author of the international bestseller Mr. China 
       comes another rollicking ride through the slick mega-
       cities and industrial backwaters of twenty-first-century 
       China--part adventure story, part erudite myth-buster, and
       part practical rule book to help Westerners win in China. 
       China's role as struggling underdog is now firmly a thing 
       of the past. The world has tilted eastward in its orbit 
       even as the West seems mired in self-doubt. Through living
       and working in China for more than two decades, Tim 
       Clissold has uncovered stealth methods Westerners can use 
       to straighten out complicated situations in China and 
       achieve their own objectives. Revealing the hidden logic 
       that governs the Chinese business and political landscape,
       Clissold puts China's cultural, political, and military 
       history into context and explains the mind-set that drives
       Chinese political and business leaders--a resource that 
       has been sorely lacking in most books about doing business
       in China. Here, with sharp observations and a deep 
       appreciation for China's rich past, Clissold presents five
       rules anyone can use to deal effectively with modern 
       Chinese counterparts. These include understanding that: 
       China has its own set of rules that provide a unique 
       pathway to success; the quest for stability overrides all 
       others; in China, one should never attack directly; in 
       solving problems, stick to practicalities and avoid 
       arguments over theory; and knowing yourself and knowing 
       the "other" will help you survive a hundred battles. 
       Combining exuberant storytelling, sly humor, and 
       counterintuitive insights, Chinese Rules traces Clissold's
       latest adventures, providing an object lesson in the 
       contradictions between reality and conventional belief 
       that continue to make China a fascinating, perplexing, and
       irresistible destination for Westerners. 
520    Outlines five rules that draw on Chinese history and 
       culture to help professionals understand the way of 
       business in China and the challenges unique to working 
       with and competing against the Chinese.
