    Enjoyable

    I have a fascination with Ancient history and China has had a long one at that. I enjoyed learning about Ancient China and I would recommend this book to anyone with similar interests.

    Beautiful blend of history and art

    Having read some 30 books on Chinese history and art before taking a trip to China this summer, I find Scarpari's book absolutely the single best book for an understanding of ancient China. The illustrations are absolutely remarkable. To say that they enhance the text is a gross understatement.

    Blows away the New Age psychobabble

    What a fantastic book! Some of the best pictures of the ancient Chinese life that I've seen in a compilation, and it puts to rest any lingering questions about how the articles fit into Chinese culture. One of the best of the best.
