I have been living in China for a few months. Rob Gifford's book is amazing. It has the feelings and emotions of the current reality of China, and has wonderful connections between the daily life of people and its historical and cultural roots. The narrator is also the best narrator I ever heard on Audible. It makes the audiobook better than reading the book. He gives the mystery feeling which is the atmosphere the author I believe wants to convey. I quote this book often in my blog on China and if you have only one book you want to read about today's China, this is definitely the one!

An Outstanding Book on China
I throughly enjoyed this book on China Today. The author doesn't bother trying to explain the political system, he is interested in the common people and their every day lives. His journey into the heart of China, and the people he spoke with, answered many questions I had about the people and the culture of today's China. His own curiosity, his empathy, and his sense of wonder drew me along on the journey. Even the narrator seemed to fit the story perfectly.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks more information about China than can be gleened on TV or magazines.
