"If you're headed to China either for business or pleasure, it's a good idea to read up on the customs."
"Mind your manners when traveling with this essential guide to the social customs of China. Etiquette Guide to China: Know the Rules That Make the Difference! is geared more to business travelers and offers tips for banquet customs, talking politics, drinking and avoiding humor in business situations among many other guidelines to help you avoid putting your foot in it." --Travel Channel
"Before the incoming administration's trade reps sit down with their counterparts in Beijing--or Washington--they might want to glance at this breezy, 191-page, CliffsNotes-type take on understanding contemporary Chinese culture, mores and manners." --Virginian Pilot
"Though the book obviously calls itself an etiquette guide, I view it as more a cultural guide, and because so much of it dealt with China business culture, I found it very helpful. This is a great book (indeed, an almost necessary book) for anyone new or relatively new to doing business in China. It also makes for an excellent refresher for China veterans." --China Law Blog
