Everything you didn't know about China,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tiger Head, Snake Tails: China Today, How it Got There and Where it is Heading (Hardcover)
This is the best book on China I have come across, a wonderfully detailed but also immensely readable "one-stop shop" for anyone interested in China, past, present and future. Sometimes shocking, sometimes funny, always awesome - like its subject - it's hard to put down. If you are going to China for work, on vacation, or you're just interested in trying to make sense of this huge and complex country (which feels like a continent) and its people, this is the book for you.
