I wish I'd read this book before I visited China years ago. This book covers almost every extraordinary everyday situation that Westerners just don't anticipate. Especially Western businesspeople. And each subject is backed-up with real-life anecdotes that illustrate just how alienated you are in mainland China. Definitely, definitely, definitely, don't visit China without reading this essential advice - it'll save you more than money..... (I know).

Solid advice on dealing with situations that you may encounter in China is given in a lucid, illuminating (and light hearted) manner based entirely on the author's personal experiences of travelling in the country. This book is at times exceptionally witty, nonetheless is highly informative and fills the gaps left by other Travel guides, reassuring those in need of a more personal account. Laced with self deprecating humour, this is most definately an essential must read.
