5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 14 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having spent some time learning to speak mandarin Chinese this book is a great place to start if you want to learn to write Chinese, no matter if its Mandarin or Cantonese the writing means the same in both languages.

But ........... shame on Amazon for their approach to UK tax affairs (i.e. non payment of corporation tax with a >3 billion turnover)

3.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction 27 May 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good history of Chinese calligraphy with stroke by stoke directions, but not enough practice exercises. I prefer Rebecca Yue's book on calligraphy.

This is an okay book. Nothing spectacular, but solid enough. I'm still looking for the perfect calligraphy book out there.
3.0 out of 5 stars I wish that it had a see inside this book feature before I bought it 16 Feb 2014
By Born in a Library - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Chinese Calligraphy instruction books. It is a life long hobby. This book looked a good addition to my library. It was not as comprehensive or instructive as I thought it would be. It says it is a beginners guide, but it is more advanced than that. Nice illustration, good instructions, but on a more intermediate level.

In my humble opinion, this book is much farther advanced than the beginner level. It packs a huge amount of information.
