President Xi just came from the recently concluded World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he talked about the inevitable globalization and his government's determination in fighting off protectionism. When he gave his speech, state-run media said China's leader was able to charm the audience.

"Whether you like it or not, the global economy is the big ocean that you cannot escape from," President Xi said as quoted.

The book's chief editor, Liu Zhihui, claimed professors from National Defense University's People's Liberation Army were the ones who edited the contents of the book to ensure authoritativeness and accuracy.

"Xi's language is witty and charming with comparisons, metaphors and references to Chinese classics," said Liu as quoted by China Daily.

"They are easy to comprehend and memorize," he continued, hinting that the team endeavored to bring out every entry's spiritual significance, while including additional military background for layman's understanding.

President Xi assumed the highest position in the Chinese government in Nov. 2012. He climbed onto the political leadership from serving as a Fujian governor from 1999 to 2002, and then from being a party secretary in Zhejiang Province from 2002 to 2007. In 2008, he became the vice president.

Xi's administration concentrates on legitimizing the authority exercised by the Communist Party of China. He is known for his staunch fight against corruption, resulting in the dismissal of hundreds of officials.
