The New Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen

Some might remember a book I released in 2016, “The Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen”. A lot has changed in the world since then, and Shenzhen is no exception.

There’s a new maintainer of the guide, Naomi Wu (@realsexycyborg), and she is crowdfunding an updated, new version with a snazzy red cover, called “The New Essential Guide to Electronics in Shenzhen”. While the technical Chinese terms haven’t changed much, a lot has changed in the culture and ways to do business; her new text gives pointers on how to engage on Wechat, digital etiquette in China, updated maps, and much more.

If you enjoyed The Guide in the past, or hope to visit the electronics markets in Shenzhen in the future, you can reserve your copy today.

    Great! I tried to place an order on CrowdSupply, but the site does not accept any of my credit cards (I tried 3 and they work everywhere else). CrowdSupply also doesn’t seem to have customer support. So what now?

    It’s very interesting to read your articles about Shenzhen city. I’ve come across one of yours about “Akihabara, Eat Your Heart Out” some ten years ago, seeing that some outsider view of this market. It has changed quite ALOT since the last few years.

    Is anyone aware of a tour group to Shenzhen from the US? Perhaps there is a website where people might meet up for a trip?
