Summary
Tourists rarely get to see the 'real' China. J. Maarten Troost, however, has come close. By fully immersing himself in Chinese culture, Troost has emerged with a greater understanding of this oxymoronic country. Here he shares everything you never knew you needed to know about China, such as the fact that haggling at a Chinese market is a survival skill, good manners are important but very different from Western thought, and waiting in line, for anything, is a contact sport
Summary
A sharply observed, hilarious account of Troost's adventures in China- a complex, fascinating country with enough dangers and delicacies to keep him, and readers, endlessly entertained
