Who knew a single trip could change a life forever? Debra Lane Wright was a successful international executive based in the US when she took her first business trip to China. Challenged by this new and vastly complicated country, Debra decided to return and prove she could accomplish the seemingly impossible!
This book documents Debra’s remarkable journey, from her first, rocky days in China to her transformation into an individual capable of navigating the complex cultural divide between East and West. Debra’s story is first and foremost a book about her journey. However, it is also something more. Why China? also provides valuable insights into the Chinese people and their long, storied culture and history.
