i would give this 3 1/2 if i could. I had just read a large book on the great leap forward so i may have just been overloaded with "Mao." My main complaint with this book is that each section read like a really really long newspaper article- maybe because he's a journalist. The content is more "personal" than the previous book i read so that was nice, but man, it was like reading the times or something day after day after day.
