An interesting and funny exposure of the dark side of China from an insider. The author is a brave man who can look at his own culture and say there is something different with it… I guess he said what many of us have been thinking, while too afraid to speak it out loud, except to other Westerners. Often he made me remind my time in Beijing and other parts of China, but if a Westerner had written this book, they might have been named a racist, or been accused of not understanding “the real China”.
I’ve read that, after this book was published, it sold hundreds of thousands of copies in East Asia. Anyone who plans to travel to China or has spent time in China should read this 🙂
