How I Lost My Kidneys in China reveals the true story of Randall Flores, an intrepid explorer who, by chance, studied Mandarin in 1987. Three years later, he made his way to the esteemed halls of Peking University, followed by a two-year stint in Taiwan. After relocating to Hong Kong in 1994, he found employment touring over five hundred factories in fifteen provinces during a twenty-year span. Along the way, zealous factory staff attempted to test his tolerance with grain alcohol called baijiu. One by one, he fought them off to be the last man standing.

When off the job, Randall ran around Asia with a running group called the Hash House Harriers while splitting his time between Shanghai and Hong Kong. But his high-flying adventure took a sharp turn when the hard drinking contributed to the failure of his kidneys. From that point on, he was at the mercy of the socialist health care system of the People's Republic.

This book will give you a front-row seat to the fast-paced rise of a global superpower while detailing one man's odyssey as he navigated his way to the top before succumbing to health issues. The story also depicts life working on the supply chain and the perils of that living. It was a journey like no other.
