I really like this book. It's short and informative, however not as detailed as I'd like (for example, most concepts are hastily glazed over abstractly, without much linguistic analysis). There are too few of these books nowadays.

I have been learning Mandarin Chinese for 2 years, and know a bit about the language. This was a refreshing read because it allowed me to understand a bit about how the culture drives the language and why the Chinese mindset is so different, all while connecting my own learning experience.

Overall, I think this is a worthwhile read if you are at all interested in China/Taiwan or the Chinese language.

A very quick read about how studying a foreign language helps us understand new cultures as well as our own. A great book for anyone interested in languages.
