Author biography

Gary Bowerman is Director of Scribes of the Orient, an Asia-based marketing and communications agency. He previously held key positions at leading travel, trade and consumer publishing companies in the UK, was a researcher for Rough Guides and managed the post-9/11 re-launch of a quarterly magazine for the American Society of Travel Agents. In China, where he has lived and worked since 2004, he was Shanghai co-editor for Zagat, and spent two years as Editor in Chief of Shanghai Business Review.
