A useful book
I enjoyed Jonathan Nichols's personal view of Myanmar. The South-East Asian country, also known as Burma, is in a period of transition from military dictatorship, and this has generated some exciting business opportunities. Nichols is one of quite a few young Western fellows to have taken a chance as an entrepreneur in Myanmar; his story is both entertaining and useful to...

This review was concise and very interesting. There were no wasted words and yet the detail kept me reading each and every word. This is not usually the type of book I would reach for but this review really makes me want to check this book out!

Puktime is essential reading for anyone doing business in Asia. It highlights the opportunities and risks associated with a country that has existed in relative isolation for the past twenty years. Largely untapped, Myanmar is a haven for those with the entrepreneurial spirit to get in at the ground level.

It was not easy for Jonathan, he endured all that Myanmar and its people could throw at him. No matter how hard he fell, he kept getting back up. Nothing could keep him down.

He has embarked upon a challenge of epic proportions. The business environment in Myanmar is particularly complex for the foreigner, it is ever changing and a constant battle. Rewards will only come through persistence and determination!

Jonathan also displays a social conscience and is not blind to the plight of Myanmar’s “Have nots.” He is eager to make a difference in Business and to the local people at large. Unperturbed and showing no fear, Jonathan attempts to conquer any challenge that Myanmar puts in front of him.

Looks like my kind of book – light reading but with touches of contemporary business and cultural insights on Myanmar. Definitely worth my time. Thanks AnaF for skillful review.

The novel is not boring as it is short enough.
