Review

"Salzman demonstrates with skill and subtlety just how Chinese society works."--The Washington Post
"Gong fu, or 'skill that transcends mere surface beauty'...no other term is as apt for a book that describes China and its people with such deftness and delight."--Time --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From the Inside Flap

Salzman captures post-cultural revolution China through his adventures as a young American English teacher in China and his shifu-tudi (master-student) relationship with China's foremost martial arts teacher. --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
