President Xi Jinping recently charmed the Davos World Economic Forum with his keynote speech.

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

Many of his quotations have become popular sayings.

This led to the publication of the first volume of his selected remarks with analysis in 2014.

It sold 500,000 copies and was reprinted 12 times. It was also translated into English and Korean.

Professors from the People's Liberation Army's National Defense University edited the book to ensure accuracy and authoritativeness. Chief editor Liu Zhihui says: "Xi's language is witty and charming, with comparisons, metaphors and references to Chinese classics. They're easy to comprehend and memorize."

Liu says the book contains 62 quotes, each with a short analysis.

"We try to dig out the spiritual significance of each entry, while adding more military background for lay readers," Liu says.
