Some other books on China history are either biased negatively toward China from a western view or they are biased in a way that it is "Communist party approved". Baum does an awesome job on avoiding both. Why? He was one of the furthest back China watchers and has a great understanding. If you know some simple Mandarin you should be able to pick up a lot of the things he throws in Chinese. They are short sentences which he immediately translates. He is an excellent narrator and story teller.

His personal experience in China makes this book unique, particularly the part of the book where he describes his chance to read a classified CCP document. There are some interesting facts which the CCP has chosen to leave out of its official history books, Baum uncovers! A great book!

A must read for all parents!

A good eye opener about how counterintuitive successful parenting is. Now when I'm at the mall or at wal-mart and I see other parents constantly nagging at their kids who are out of control I know why. I used to have a teacher in high school who had such an amazing and polite little 5 year old boy. Now that I think about his style as a teacher, I know why his boy was like that after reading this book.

This book will challenge your thoughts about parenting - because it's likely that your parents did it backwards as well. Our boy is 2 and I had a couple times where I found myself going down the traditional road of "trying to straighten him out". The problems continued, but after reading this book I can see change. It is a challenge to follow the methods, but the book's goal is to re-wire your brain on the cause and effect relationship between your actions as a parent in discipline and your child's actions or temper.

great book
