Críticas:

"This brilliantly structured, deeply felt book is written with the confidence and bravura of a man born to write. Hamid is at the peak of his considerable powers here, and delivers a tightly paced, preternaturally wise book about a thoroughly likable, thoroughly troubled striver in the messiest, most chaotic ring of the global economy. Completely unforgettable." -Dave Eggers, author of "A Hologram for the King" "Written in the most compelling second person since Jay McInerney's "Bright Lights, Big City," with which it also shares a sharp take on our frenetic, urban lives, Hamid's novel proves that the most compelling fiction today is coming from South Asia." -"The Daily Beast" "Hamid's choice to write a bildungsroman wrapped inside a self-help manual is an inspired one... Hamid has left us with no doubts about how state and market, law and crime, nation and corporation, and money and violence go together--in rising Asia as in the rest of the world." -"Bookforum" "An astonishing and riveting tale of a man's journey from impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon." -"The Nation" "A joyously barbed satire on entrepreneurialism and the juggernaut of globalisation... Will be one of the standout novels of the year." -"The Guardian" "Mohsin Hamid is one of the best writers in the world, period. Only a master could have written this propulsive tale of a striver living on the knife's edge, a noir Horatio Alger story for our frenetic, violent times. The road to filthy riches is nasty, brutish, and long, yet Hamid's talent is such that we see the humanity in all this striving--indeed, on finishing this extraordinary book, one wonders if the striving might be the sincerest expression of our flawed, fragile humanity." -Ben Fountain, author of "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" "A dazzling stylistic tour de force; a love story disguised as a self-help guide, freighted with sly social satire. As timely and timeless a novel as

Reseña del editor:

How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia is the outstanding follow-up to Mohsin Hamid's spectacular international best-seller and Booker Prize shortlisted The Reluctant Fundamentalist.

In this keenly-awaited follow-up to his bestselling The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Mohsin Hamid confirms his place as a radically inventive story-teller with his finger on the world's pulse.

The astonishing and riveting tale of a man's journey from impoverished rural boy to corporate tycoon, it steals its shape from the business self-help books devoured by youths all over 'rising Asia'. It follows its nameless hero to the sprawling metropolis where he begins to amass an empire built on the most fluid and increasingly scarce of goods: water. Yet his heart remains set on something else, on the pretty girl whose star rises alongside his, their paths crossing and re-crossing in a love affair sparked and snuffed out again by the forces that careen their fates along.

The hero of the story could be any one of us, hungry for a different life. And ours too could be the fate that awaits him . . .

Fast-paced, vivid and emotionally absorbing, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia creates two unforgettable characters who find moments of transcendent intimacy in the midst of shattering change.
