It's not a translation. The original text has over 500 000 Chinese characters which would amount to roughly over 200 000 words. This load of dirtied paper has but 7300 words. I'm wondering if the "translator(s)" can be sued for swindling his/her/their customers.
I have tried to pin down the fragments of the original work to the English version, but failed.

The lesson here is in the ripoff, an expensive demonstration of Thick Black Theory. The "translator" is literally a human piece of garbage (who has managed to earn more than one ass-beating for his various frauds). He IS, however, a low-budget living personification of Thick Black Theory. He doesn't care that he's cheating the public with an inferior product because he wants people's money and doesn't care what the personal cost is. The "translator" is thick-faced in that if he is called a dirtbag he will say "so what?" and he is black-hearted because he is purely focused on stealing your money. Congratulations, sir!

Mr. Zhao An Xin's English is so poor he apparently doesn't know the difference between translation and quotation. The book is filled with, "Li Zongwu said ..." and "Zongwu said ...". Does that sound like a translation of Li Zongwu's book?!

The book is filled with typos and errors of all sorts. In fact, the very first historical story Mr. Zhao told in this book was wrong and he contradicted himself in the very next paragraph. With every page the writing gets more and more incoherent.

On the positive side, Mr. Zhao may indeed be a good student of Thick Black Theory. At least the thick part. Who else would have skin thick enough to publish a book in such poor English?!

I read this book, and sent it back. It is a useless piece of garbage that makes very little sense. I subscibed to the author's mailing list And some of the stuff he sent me sounded more like a four year old's fantasy. He is going on a secret mission to Burma, The cia uses him for missions, you get the drift. Also, he is caucasian.
