Sidney Rittenberg is an American journalist, scholar, and Chinese linguist who lived in China from 1944 to 1980. He worked closely with Mao Zedong, Zhu De, Zhou Enlai, and other leaders of the Chinese Communist Party during the war, and was with these central Communist leaders at Yan’an. He witnessed first-hand much of what occurred at upper levels of the CCP and knew many of its leaders personally. Later, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement, twice, for a total of 16 years. Rittenberg’s connections and experience have enabled him to run a successful consultancy business representing some of the world’s biggest brands, such as Intel, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, Hughes Aircraft and Teledesic.
He has written a book, Manage Your Mind: Set Yourself Free. While he was imprisoned in China on false charges for sixteen years, instead of being angry, scarred, or bitter, he is merry, affectionate, balanced, and fun. In this book, he offers the welcome news that we are stronger than we think. We can learn ways that can guide us through struggles we never imagined.
