I have been writing about quality assurance issues in China for more than 18 months on this blog. It has pushed me to clarify my thinking, to be more curious, and to get in touch with many interesting people.
A blog is perfect for publishing content easily. But it does a mediocre job presenting the author’s ideas as a coherent whole.
I have been working on an e-book to summarize the best practices of China sourcing, from a quality assurance point of view. I am happy to publish it for my readers:

Is there anything you would add? What do you think?
