This book is at least six months old, and is difficult to track down even in Hong Kong bookshops.
So why am I reviewing it
The person that put me onto this book happens to manage a lot of money for a very rich individual, so I decided there must be something in it. And there is.
It is the history of an individual called Noel Croucher, a stockbroker who lived in Hong Kong and who was reckoned at one time to be the richest man east of Suez. It is also a history of corporate Hong Kong that focuses less on the Jardines and Swires than the smaller, mostly forgotten companies.
