First, we should be happy that The Jade Door is available via Amazon. There is very little currently in the way of "Asian Erotic Art" for offer, much less Chinese, on the site. It earns it's rating for this reason alone. However, if you are purchasing The Jade Door in the hope of finding the Chinese woman in beautiful, nude, form you will be disappointed. The cover illustration is by far the best as compared to what lays in between (no pun intended) for you to discover. The images inside are too small, confused and are otherwise poorly presented. Moreover, the woman have unmistakenly "western" faces. I've spent 20 years in Asia (mostly in China) and can easily see the differential. Perhaps, the creators thought such "western" facial features would be more appealing to an English audience. I don't know but it's not Chinese...The story lines are OK and, in fact, better than the art. I do not regret purchasing this work but I would keep looking if expecting to find truly erotic illustrations of beautiful Chinese women. They are the most wonderful of flowers in the garden, so keep up the search!

You definitely can't judge this one by the cover.
