    True and detailled story about the communism

    Every small chapter show the chinese policy to control the people, torture them especially the intellectuals. I was in the same situation like teacher Wu, the foreign company where I worked was in the situation like Mr Mark in Hong Kong foot, the mistreatment that the civilians suffered was the same in Suicide... All information and advance in the world were avoid to publish to chinese people. Only if you live like the fisherman, didn't need to go to school, you felt comfortable because the Party, the government didn't pay attention to you. Consequence of the system : terrify people > must to obey > easy to manage > VALUE, TALENT, ABILITY can't develop > objective of the communist party.

    READ THIS BOOK!!!

    This book was the best book that I have ever read. It is written as though Salzman was telling you the stories in person. It's an easy read and the collection of stories are incredible. If you want just a good book to read, this is the book to get.
