Sorry, but I have lived, taught and worked in China for a dozen years and find most of this book to be very much a sop to China and the Chinese.

Time and time again, I had to laugh at the author's representations of what was going on. For example, most English teachers are convinced teaching schedules, work days, off days are conceived in an ad hoc, almost by whims, manner. Yet, in fact the entire year's schedule is published before the first class. He claims "No freedom of religion" is a big lie. Religious freedom is guaranteed by Chinese law, but Chinese can only exercise this right in government authorized facilities and government approved ways. Stanelle claims web sites are not blocked. Yet for years Wikipedia was unavailable.

I question his rendition of Chinese history. While I do feel Tibet is, and should remain, part of China, the reasons are significantly more complicated than Stanelle offers. I would also point out that China did invade Vietnam in 1979 which gives lie to the claim that China "NEVER" has invaded anyone.

Generally, I would classify this book is pretty much a waste of time.

Well written & honest perceptions of China. Great read if you plan to visit or just want to learn more about China from a layman's point of view.

I am still reading the book but I find it to be well written in a conversational way. I feel I can hear the author telling me about his experiences in China. I am jumping around in the book and reading chapters that catch my attention. The information is good and shared in a more personal manner of the person who has lived there and experienced being part of the Chinese culture. I would encourage anyone who plans to visit or just wants to better understand the Chinese culture to read this book.
