    This review is from: Prepare Yourself for China: The Visitor’s Survival Guide to China (Paperback)

    While this may not be the most scholarly book, the tips provided by the author are well worth the purchase price. He does not pull any punches and tells you what to look out for as a westerner. I know there are more politically correct books out there – but this book will keep you from being stranded by an unlicensed cab – something “cultural sensitivity” will not.

    This book does NOT prepare you for China, December 7, 2012

    This review is from: Prepare Yourself for China: The Visitor’s Survival Guide to China (Paperback)

    Reading this book is like sitting at the bar and striking up a conversation about travelling to China with a stranger. You listen for a bit, there are a few interesting tid bits, but overall you don’t take your experience as profound or very useful. This book is not very detailed and gives no resources to further prepare yourself for your trip. For example, the author repeats over and over about using a telephone translator but gives no names of translator services he’s used, reviews and comparisons. Then he throws in little stories here and there, but overall this book is not useful for preparing for China. You would be better off going to the Frommers website and reading through that. The only useful bit I found in this book was the roughly page and a half of useful Chinese phrases. The issue here is that the author states that he finds another book (Lonely Planet, I believe) to give a more useful langauge reference. Save your money and time on this one…

    This book is poorly written, often uncharitable, rather vulgar, (and has enough parentheses to write a sizeable program in Lisp). For the Westerner traveling to China, it’s also indispensable.

    If you answer to that description, particularly if you’re traveling on business, buy this book. Mr. Bailie may not have a secretary or an editor, but his little book will save you money, time, hassle, and embarrassment. And despite all the errors of syntax, it’s really entertaining reading.

    This book shouldn’t be your only guide to China, but it’s not meant to be. This book is where you will find the critical details that seasoned travelers know, but that polite travel books can’t or won’t print.

    If you seek great travel literature and refined English prose, look elsewhere. If you want successful trips to China, you need to read this book.
