Editorial Reviews

Review

"Engrossing...[Dychtwald]...writes with an infectious energy...To make sense of contemporary China, it is crucial to understand the varied aspirations, anxieties, fears and fantasies of the many millions of Chinese as big a group as the entire populations of some sizeable countries who were born after the year that soldiers killed protesters near Tiananmen Square. Young China provides an excellent starting point for doing just that." ―The Wall Street Journal

"Enlightening...we learn that Chinese millennials, unlike their jaded American counterparts, are still dreamers and strivers, and have faith that they can achieve their dreams." ―The Washington Post

"Fascinating... a remarkably revealing portrait of China's youngest generations." ―Christian Science Monitor

"Dychtwald presents a thoughtful depiction of a culture that, in the words of one young person, 'has a voice but needs to be translated for a global audience.'" ―Booklist

"Fascinating...An entertaining and instructive exploration of the Chinese generation born after 1990." ―BookPage

"This engaging and fast-paced read will appeal to those interested in modern China and the experiences of Millennials." ―Library Journal

"Insightful...Readable and engaging...Informative and often entertaining good reading for anyone looking into the crystal ball for a glimpse of the world a quarter-century from now." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Dychtwald builds an intimate profile of Chinese millennials―how they cope with crushing academic and professional pressures, their ideas about marriage, sex, and love, and their views on country and government―and how, ultimately, they are changing China and the world. An engaging read for anyone looking for an introduction to contemporary Chinese culture and society." ―Elizabeth Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director for Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations

"A richly informative and surprisingly intimate portrait of a side of China unknown to most Westerners." ―Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

"In Young China, Dychtwald builds an intimate profile of Chinese millennials how they cope with crushing academic and professional pressures, their ideas about marriage, sex, and love, and their views on country and government―and how, ultimately, they are changing China and the world. A series of lively anecdotes and personal experiences woven together with accessible research and analysis, Young China is an engaging read for anyone looking for an introduction to contemporary Chinese culture and society." ―Elizabeth Economy, C.V. Starr Senior Fellow and Director for Asia Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations

"An absolute delight: a highly engaging, well-reported look at contemporary China at the ground level. Zak Dychtwald of Young China is himself young and, thankfully, gregarious and observant. He introduces readers to his wide circle of Chinese friends. A rarity among books about China: Young China is a fun read." ―Randall Stross, author of Bulls in the China Shop and Other Sino-American Business Encounters

“If you read just one book about where China is heading, let this be it―clear, exciting, and revelatory.” ―Amory B. Lovins, cofounder and chief scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute

“China and everything Chinese are looming large now and in the near future for the world to reckon with. We need young minds and young talents from both the East and the West to find deeper mutual understanding and enhance genuine synthesis. Here is a book of thoughtful, in-depth study and research, through Dychtwald's personal experience living with the Chinese younger generation. This is a most timely and insightful book.” ―Chungliang Al Huang, President-Founder, Living Tao Foundation, Director, International Lan Ting Institute

"An indispensable must-read journey of discovery and a cogent analysis into the mindset and future of young China." ―Dr. James Canton, CEO & Chairman The Institute for Global Futures, author, Future Smart

"Day by day, China's influence grows, all around us, directly and indirectly, whether or not we perceive it. Young China by Zak Dychtwald will make this apparent to you. He has explored corners of China's land and soul that remain invisible to virtually all of our pundits and media, bringing fresh eyes to what he sees. You will be smart―and wise―to read what he has to say." ―Michael Murphy, founder of the Esalen Institute

"A fascinating book about young China by a young American who dared to learn Mandarin and immerse himself in Chinese life and friendships. China changes so fast that everything we think we know about it is obsolete in a heartbeat. Zak Dychwald’s book makes us feel we have been in China with him.” ―Erica Jong
