Overview

Never before was a book about the Chinese language written in such great details and covering all aspects of the language in one fascinating story. This is an elaborately illustrated book about the Chinese language covering Mandarin pronunciations, the etymology of the fascinating Chinese characters, the characteristics of the Chinese language, the glory, chagrin, dismemberment, and reduction of the Chinese characters that left us the two versions of Chinese language today, the Standard and the Simplified, and the outcry of the Chinese people to return to using the Standard. This is the book for everyone who maintains a fundamental interest in the Chinese language and culture, a book for the novice and experienced as well as foreigners and natives of the Chinese language.
For its extensive colour illustrations throughout, this book is best read with a colour screen reader.
