James Donaldson’s Book Review – Lost On Planet China by J. Maarten Troost

http://www.audible.com/pd/Travel-Adventure/Lost-on-Planet-China-Audiobook/B002V9Z710 This was absolutely one of the best books I’ve read on China because it really gave an accurate and humorous overview from the author’s perspective.
