The most hilarious and brilliant book I've read in a long time. Reading passages to my wife, it's hard to get through them without bursting out laughing. Han Han is bold and unsparing about the Chinese leadership (don't be surprised if he turns up dead one of these days in a mysterious race car accident), but at the end he's compassionate, thoughtful, and optimistic, where he calls for avoiding a bloody revolution. In case you're put off by the strangely large number of 1-star reviews (at least on Amazon, check it out), please follow this recipe: - Buy the book. At a mere $10, you won't regret it. - Read Han Han's essays about the "50-centers": (Jan. 20,2010: "Required course for Chinese officials: Lesson One" and 02/06/2010: "Are you Xiaoming?") Now you'll completely understand where those negative reviews come from. Ignore them and enjoy the book!
