by Tommy Tong

Overview
"Genghis goes to China" is a pretty straight forward Mongolian version of 'I came, I saw, I conquered" except that Genghis had a much more colorful life than Mr. Caesar. The little guy was sent away at age 9, left homeless shortly after, learned to hunt and hide by 10, kidnapped & enslaved by 12, escaped & married by 16, had his wife kidnapped by a bully-king, borrowed 20,000 cavalry from a buddy and got her back all before reaching the legal voting age of most democracies. No wonder the lad had time to become one of the world's greatest conquerors.

About the author
Tommy Tong has led, managed and mentored in multinational environments on four continents as soldier, executive and consultant. He holds two masters degrees in international business, has studied 7 languages, commissioned officers, promoted black belts, married couples, saved lives, raised kids, built businesses, written songs, written books, performed for, taught, managed and led thousands. Having lived in China for many years, Tommy is acutely aware that Westerners know very little about the mysterious nation so powerful in global influence, wealth and culture. After struggling to find a book to teach his own children about the rising superpower, Tong developed a new series of early reader books on China with the intention of teaching parents a little something about the country along the way. He calls it his “three birds, one arrow” strategy as he tells tales of excitement for all ages.
