After living in China almost 10 years, there is nothing that scares me more then another China book written by a Laowei (foreigner) who thinks he/she knows the secret to this land. Language Gymnastics is anything but this. It is ridiculously funny, uncomfortably accurate and totally memorable! I recommend this book to all those looking to learn a little more about China, its culture and people whilst having a laugh at the same time. In fact I have prescribed this book as standard reading for all my younger Chinese staff who would benefit greatly from a refresher course in the Chinese way.

As a person who wanted to learn more about China generally - without ever having been there myself - I found this book a wonderful introduction; complete with an outside-in and inside-out views of China, its customs, its people, and its languages (dialects).
