Thank you for submitting your work to Outskirts Press for evaluation.I am pleased to report that your work A Story of Viêt nam has been accepted for publication.
You certainly have an interesting narrative here. I really enjoyed your approach and outlook... You do a nice job of sharing your research and ideas. Your narrative voice is very familiar and friendly. You have a way with words and your writing has an excellent flow to it. Your book is nicely put together and filled with information I am sure many people will find interesting and thought provoking. It is obvious that you have done your homework and put much work and preparation (and research) into your work. You have a certain fervor for your subject matter because you really speak to your audience. I am certain your word will be well received by a wide audience. Your book is well written.
From the Author
As I wrote this book, I always kept in mind the generations of hyphenated Vietnamese who have had no opportunity to learn much about the land of their ancestors in schools of their new country. I wanted to narrate to them the story of Vietnam from the beginning to the present. I also meant to relate the political events of Vietnam's past to its cultural features so that my readers can experience Vietnamese society in its wholeness.
I also wish this work will find its way to the people who know already so much about Vietnam as a war but who would still like to read something about Vietnam as a people, a country, a culture.

I found a lot of the sections regarding culture, music, literature and poetry a little hard to get through, but overall the book is an excellent look at Vietnam history. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in Vietnam .
As a traveler it certainly gave me a better understanding of various areas of the country.
