China is a distant country,a country of old rules and strange laws. It's difficult to understand the country not only for people of western countries but also for people like me born and living in China. This book can let us know many things in the back of China,I think.

I was very pleased to see that Tang Baiqiao's autobiography, 'My Two Chinas' has been published. Since the 1989 Tiananmen massacre, for more than 20 years, the pro-democracy movement in exile has been a spectacle confronted by challenges. Too many people accept the Communist Party (CCP) propaganda, allowing the CCP to speak for the populace; too many people have lost touch with their conscience; too many people have sold out to the CCP. The movement has many ostensible statesmen, sinologists, strategists, pundits, and prominent human rights advocates. But Tang Baiqiao is truly all of these things, a man who did not stray nor sell out, and a man who has been steadfast to stay with the lonely struggle -- an indefatigable brave warrior who revolts against the CCP tyranny as a leading Chinese dissident. 'My Two Chinas' vividly tells Tang's story across more than 20 years, following the difficult course of his life as he struggles indomitably for freedom, democracy, and human rights. His book prompts the reader to awaken to the truth, and evokes gratitude and admiration. The world has recently been inspired by the 'people power' transformation of the Middle East and North Africa. World attention is due to focus on China once again, as we expect 'people power' to disintegrate the tyranny of the CCP. Given the size of China, this is humanity's largest worthy cause -- to change the leadership of China away from the CCP, humanity's largest disaster. Hopefully, given attention from a world-wide readership, this autobiography will show the brutality of the Chinese Communist Party, and also the strength and the hope that arises from the Chinese populace's revolt against the CCP tyranny. Hopefully, the reader will support the Chinese people in withdrawing from the Communist Party, and in the worthy cause of disintegrating the CCP. In this way, people power can truly lead to a better world. Dayong Li Chief Director of Global Service Center for Quitting Chinese Communist Party

My Two Chinas is a book that works on many levels. It's a classic coming of age tale, a lesson in how the love of freedom can be found in the darkest of places, a harrowing adventure, and a yes, even a love story. Mostly it's just a great read and I finished on in a single flight to Shanghai. It is also an amazingly timely book as we see a second wave of freedom and people-power breaking out across the globe. A new generation of young people are standing up and declaring themselves fully human in the very same way Baiqiao and his compatriots did. Some of them will succeed, some of them will fail, and many of them may die. Reading My Two Chinas helps readers who have never lived outside the comfortable world of liberty understand why such personal sacrifice is offered, regardless of the outcome. My Two Chinas should be required reading for every European or American businessperson or politician heading to Chengdu or Shenzhen to make a deal. Baiqiao Tang and Damon DiMarco have given Westerners a gift of moral context we must not ignore: The profits we make off of China' state capitalism and the cheap goods we enjoy have had a very real human cost and China's power structure has not changed in any meaningful way since the tragic events of 1989. It is only the Party's marketing department has been vastly improved. The China we visit today or see on the news is a message as carefully crafted as any Disney attraction. The paint is replaced daily with censorship, repression, and intimidation. Tang and DiMarco peel back that facade and illuminate the darkness behind with the powerful light of one young man's courage. The smiling faces of China's Communist leaders will never look real to you again and I promise you that when your plane takes off from Pudong you'll look back and see a very different China than the one you thought you knew. p.s. When you escape the "People's Republic", please be sure to leave this book behind in the hope that it might shed a little light into the gulag. The very fact you know doing so might get you in trouble, tells you how just right Mr. Tang is about his home country and why you too must offer a small sacrifice for humanity.

This book is truly amazing. I recommend this book for anyone in the world to read, especially if you have an interest in freedom. Baiqiao Tang is truly a remarkable human being and this book is written so well, it is very difficult to put down. Please read this book.

Couldn't take my eyes off of this book. Truly inspiring. Gives a picture of China we need to know, especially us living in the West so blind about contemporary China. China has been ruled by a ruthless regime for too long, and will see true heroes coming out of its hell, hopefully this story will help us understand better and most of all Care!  Tang is probably one of these heroes!
