Here are nonfiction books I enjoyed reading in 2018 (more precisely, these are books I read during the second part of 2017 through 2018). Not all of these books were released this year, although most them are 2018 releases. I read many of these using Apple Books on my iPad but I’ve also gotten back to scouring thrift stores and used bookstores (where I’ve gotten some amazing bargains this year).
My wife and I have taken several trips to China over the last few years, and along the way I’ve enjoyed several books that I list below:
- Alibaba: The House That Jack Ma Built
- China’s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know
- China’s Great Wall of Debt
- Young China – How the Restless Generation Will Change Their Country and the World. A great tour through the challenges faced by China’s millennials. (Another good book on this topic is Wish Lanterns: Young Lives in New China)
- China’s Future
