A book aimed at non-Chinese who have more than a pragmatic interest in Chinese handwriting, this book teaches you the beauty of calligraphy, and promises to deal with the different types of handwriting. Unfortunately, it doesn't go into enough detail. It's a beginner's book, and as such it is a good read. Lots of radicals and common characters are explained in a writer's context, which makes further study a lot easier.

I'm a Chinese American. Prepared to assist English-speaking learners to accomplish their Chinese-learning dreams. This book is not only teach you graphically, the spirit of Chinese characters are also transcended to the beginners. Varieties of scripts are well illustrated. It's a very beautiful book to keep and Characters writing is learned in an authentic way. Never get you bored! It's a treasure.

I only came into this book because I know the author however already learning Chinese for 4 years this book still deserves a place on my bookshelf. Easy to use, and easy to follow this book allows you to actually get somewhere in your Chinese learning. Everyone who wants to learn Chinese no matter how much should read this book first!
