"The Twists and Turns of Living in Shanghai" consist of two and a half years (January 2017 to June 2019) in China’s largest city. We’ll encounter the trials and tribulations (both conventional and unconventional), which textbooks and colleges don’t prepare us to wrestle. In fact, there’s more Yang (chaos) compared to Yin (order).
If stories about quitting a job to experience wanderlust or preaching the perks of living abroad are what you're craving, well, you won't find it here. Now if reading stuff that makes eyebrows raise, to say, "What the f***?" and causes some chuckles along the way is your cup of tea, then I welcome you to taste my batch. We'll explore the other side of the coin: the things we don't see or hear about on social media posts. In this book, it's the twists and turns of living overseas with twenty-four million people in Shanghai, China.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Aldo takes you into the maze of relocating to another country while navigating past the barrier of 'ugly American.' Trying to assimilate into a very different society is a challenge that is both daunting and humorous; but Aldo never forgets to look at what makes the situation unique: communication and expressive creativity.
