This book does a great job of conveying the information it needs to. It is average for the books I listen to, but that average represents a high quality because I am very selective.
This book gave great cultural insight into China, covering things from a number of important angles, helped build understanding, and culminating in a very positive message. It takes a very detailed and analytical approach.
The narration was overall monotonous, and for this reason it was hard to get through it. It wasn't helped that often the writing was often laboured also.
This is honestly quite dry, but once you get past that, it is full of important insights. Sometimes a detailed approach is important, but the writing style and delivery could have been better to draw you.
"Excruciatingly bad Chinese pronunciation"
The book is supposed to advice you on how to deal with Chinese, but the reading is sooooo bad and abhorrent especially the Chinese words that it gets really distracting.
Get someone who,is willing to invest in time learning how to read pinyin properly before reading for this kind of book.
I have to think hard where are the location being read because the pronunciation is horrid! The voice is fantastic though.
