Description

About the book (from Google Books):

In this classic book Yutang Ling does a fantastic job of describing Chinese people, customs and culture in an understandable way for the Western reader. this book was the first of its kind, Ling being a rarity as he was fluent in both English and Chinese, having been born in China but growing up in America. This extremely popular book will prove to be a fascinating read, and is highly recommended on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in different cultures and societies.
