    "Faces of China" A humorous and penetrating look at modern China and Chinese culture. It's quite witty and gets to the point. I enjoyed it. A good and needed crash course into what makes the Chinese mind tick that has brought the gigantic economic revolution that is changing the world as we know it.

    "Faces of China" Since I am a Russian citizen and was born on the border of China, this country always fascinated me. I had heard many things about it, good and bad but never took the time to look into it deeply or research for myself because most of the books were quite boring and had no pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words and I've found that to be true when I opened Faces of China. To be frank, when my husband bought it I thought it would be another one of those books with lots of facts but nothing to grab my attention. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the caricatures. That sparked my interest and I wanted to know why the author put certain pictures there. Before I knew it I was reading page after page. The style of the book is for easy reading and like in a well balanced meal you get a bit of everything. There aren't too many boring starchy facts but it is spiced up with quite a bit of juicy gravy like the Chapter called Observations and Peculiarities and... More > nice salads like What's in a Name? I must admit that my favourite was the chapter about Chinese women which I consider the dessert. Being a woman, I found it fascinating to compare Chinese and Russian women and thanks to this book have a better understanding of them. It's a well written book and it's obvious that the author has really lived there and is truly interested in the Chinese people. It's well worth reading and I'm glad I did!< Less
