Ordered this book. Was sent "Peter in Blueberry Land"...
There is no reason why anyone should not read this book. It takes perhaps an hour to read, but it contains information on every part of Chinese translation. Invaluable in understanding the demands of translation, as well as a required read for any amateur student of the Chinese language.
