really liked it

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in China, martial arts, or travel. Mark Salzman has the ability to tell some really incredible anecdotes from the time he spent teaching English at a Chinese medical college. His stories are sharply observed, compassionate and often humorous. His writing is sometimes flat for a lack of character development (including a lack of development of himself as the narrator), but the reading is still more than worthwhile. In a word, "touching."
