This review is from: Beijing for Beginners: An Irishman in the People's Republic (Paperback)Before picking up this book my knowledge of China was quite limited. Like everyone I knew the big stuff but had no sense of what the place would be like to visit or live.
For me this was the perfect intro. It's a wonderfully written and frequently hilarious trip through China written from an Irish/European perspective. I found myself learning a number of very interesting things about this new global powerhouse as I accompanied the author and his girlfriend on their travels.
Excellent book. Get it, you won't be disappointed.
