After the Olympics in China, I got mixed reviews from friends who had visited China during in the past few years. So I wanted to read something by some one, not Chinese, living in China. I thought Tragic Kingdom was perfect. The auther, Broc Smith, talked about the people, customs and places. He painted candid pictures whcih matched the good and bad things friends had told me about China.

This will be short. For those like me with 25 years in this themed industry, working in Vegas, Orlando, Thailand, Korea and Japan, this personal story of 10 years in China, was full of valuable insight - now that we're working in China too.
The world is a varied place.

This is such a fascinating account of one man's myriad experiences as he travels a complex , gritty journey. He fully draws the reader into his interactions with a very foreign culture and one much less wealthy than his own. Yet it is one he has embraced. He does no disservice to the places he has been but only gives them a more human aspect. He makes it real and this reader is quite envious of the journey he has taken.
The writer comes from a place in his own heart and shares that willingly.
