Read in September, 2011

It took me weeks to finish this book. I lost it behind the couch, left it at my Dad's, and read a few pages at night before I fell asleep. The author had an personal agenda and it took me a long time to figure out where his biase was coming from, and with that he doesn't share much of his personal history with the Soongs, but he obviously had one. Overall, it was a good background book for modern Chinese/American history and introduced all the major players with their foibles and weaknesses. Now I need to find a less biased book to see where he was on target and where he let his personal interest carry him away.

Jim This is so's a propaganda, derogatory book that can't be trusted, it's a shame that the writer could do such thing, he may have been paid by the communists to destroy Taiwan and the Soong family's images and history...
