Very useful and hilarious!
What a delightful little book this is! We purchased China Survival Guide before a three-week trip to China in January and found it invaluable. This is the perfect complement to other travel books, which provide more details on sights to see but not nearly as much practical information designed to help Westerners adjust to life in China. From advice on crossing busy streets safely to navigating Chinese restrooms to dealing with medical emergencies (which thankfully we didn't have to put to the test), this book is a must-have for first-time travelers to this fascinating country and a bargain to boot.

I am a student in my second year of taking Chinese in college. Since finishing my first year of Chinese, I have begun to wish that I could have the basic grammar patterns of Chinese written down for me, to help me apply my knowledge outside of the classroom. Sure, I can understand the patterns in class, but outside of class I am often lost. This book is an amazing learning tool to have. It's easy to follow along and it's incredibly helpful. It's the perfect size for carrying around and pulling out when the homework gets tough.
