3Novices:How the Israeli who captured Chinese hearts plans to turn online fame into fortune

It is a hard thing for foreigners to be accepted by the Chinese public. Among the few successful ones, Raz Gal-Or must be one of the smartest, and possibly the youngest, having gained huge popularity through internet.
