China Road: A Journey into the Future of a Rising Power by Rob Gifford

China Road: A Journey into the Future of a Rising Power by Rob Gifford

This is an excellent, fairly easy read for anyone interested in culture. Rob Gifford, an NPR correspondent takes one last road trip on road 312 to get a feel of the real China and its people. Gifford talks to people from all walks of life about the countries’ flaws, it’s history, and it’s hopes for the future. He sets out to understand the city and in the end, he comes out more confused, and more appreciative of China and its people then before.

I knew next to nothing about China before I picked up this book. And while I’m certainly no expert, I find the knowledge I obtained from this book invaluable. Great for lighter reading.
