    This is a great book for people wanting to know what it is like to live in China, especially with the younger generation. It is easy to read, but it is like reading a memoir or even a textbook. I still don't think I understand how the younger generation is going to make China different...

    Dychtwald's writes well and his sentences have a neat flowing rhythm to them, although hejumps from topic to topic ? back and forth ? and does so even within the twelve loosely-bundled chapters of the book. 'Young China' feels like a loosely weaved net of anecdotes, which are ric...

    Another new book describing the ever-changing young Chinese. This book is long on interesting, even provocative stories and scenes of the angst and dreams of today?s twenty-something Chinese. While the author devoted a long chapter to gay-lesbian issues in China?s changing soci...

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The author presents a more personal look at China's version of milennials, the post-90s generation growing up in their country's fast-paced and overwhelming lifestyle. It's clear that many struggle combining the traditional expectations ...

    A close friend, the author's nephew, suggested that I read this book. I am glad that I did. This book provides an on-the-ground view of what is going on with young Chinese adults. It is excellently written and heavily footnoted. The book is a real eye opener, particularly in its explan...

    A very interesting and well written report/explanation and insight into contemporary Chinese culture (i.e, focusing on the post-1990 birth cohort) and how the young (approximately 20-40 age range) differ in outlook and expectation from their parents and grandparents. I would have appre...

    3.5 stars. Would have given it a 4 if there is better editing. The shoddy English at times is grating and distracting at time (at least to me). Nevertheless, this is a decent attempt to help Westerners navigate the enigma that is China. The writer claims to be fluent in Mandarin but hi...

    I'm a millennial marketing consultant, so after finding out about Zak Dychtwald's Young China, I knew I had to read it. I always expect books like this to be informative but dry, so I was positively surprised by the fact that Young China is not only very informative and insightful, but...

    Having had the opportunity to work with Chinese students for the past 5 years both here and in China, I felt i had a pretty good understanding of Chinese Culture. I?m pleased to say that this book was well worth my time to read, helping me to better understand some of my understan...

    Fascinating and Compelling I heard about this book on public radio. I took a chance on it and I?m glad I did. The author brought Young China to life. He provided a taste of Chinese history as he explained what makes the young people of China tick. At times the bigness of it all fe...

    This book gives the reader great insight in to the young Chinese millennials. I learned so much from reading this book. ...

    This is a great book for people wanting to know what it is like to live in China, especially with the younger generation. It is easy to read, but it is like reading a memoir or even a textbook. I still don't think I understand how the younger generation is going to make China different...

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The author presents a more personal look at China's version of milennials, the post-90s generation growing up in their country's fast-paced and overwhelming lifestyle. It's clear that many struggle combining the traditional expectations ...

    A close friend, the author's nephew, suggested that I read this book. I am glad that I did. This book provides an on-the-ground view of what is going on with young Chinese adults. It is excellently written and heavily footnoted. The book is a real eye opener, particularly in its explan...

    A very interesting and well written report/explanation and insight into contemporary Chinese culture (i.e, focusing on the post-1990 birth cohort) and how the young (approximately 20-40 age range) differ in outlook and expectation from their parents and grandparents. I would have appre...

    3.5 stars. Would have given it a 4 if there is better editing. The shoddy English at times is grating and distracting at time (at least to me). Nevertheless, this is a decent attempt to help Westerners navigate the enigma that is China. The writer claims to be fluent in Mandarin but hi...

    I'm a millennial marketing consultant, so after finding out about Zak Dychtwald's Young China, I knew I had to read it. I always expect books like this to be informative but dry, so I was positively surprised by the fact that Young China is not only very informative and insightful, but...

    This is a great book for people wanting to know what it is like to live in China, especially with the younger generation. It is easy to read, but it is like reading a memoir or even a textbook. I still don't think I understand how the younger generation is going to make China different...

    A close friend, the author's nephew, suggested that I read this book. I am glad that I did. This book provides an on-the-ground view of what is going on with young Chinese adults. It is excellently written and heavily footnoted. The book is a real eye opener, particularly in its explan...

    A very interesting and well written report/explanation and insight into contemporary Chinese culture (i.e, focusing on the post-1990 birth cohort) and how the young (approximately 20-40 age range) differ in outlook and expectation from their parents and grandparents. I would have appre...

    3.5 stars. Would have given it a 4 if there is better editing. The shoddy English at times is grating and distracting at time (at least to me). Nevertheless, this is a decent attempt to help Westerners navigate the enigma that is China. The writer claims to be fluent in Mandarin but hi...

    I'm a millennial marketing consultant, so after finding out about Zak Dychtwald's Young China, I knew I had to read it. I always expect books like this to be informative but dry, so I was positively surprised by the fact that Young China is not only very informative and insightful, but...

    Having had the opportunity to work with Chinese students for the past 5 years both here and in China, I felt i had a pretty good understanding of Chinese Culture. I?m pleased to say that this book was well worth my time to read, helping me to better understand some of my understan...

    My daughter is planning to study in China for her final high school year and when I came across the review of Young China I became intrigued. The book is a light and fun read about how people in China live with a focus on millennials. A lot has changed in China since the mid to late 20...

    Fascinating and Compelling I heard about this book on public radio. I took a chance on it and I?m glad I did. The author brought Young China to life. He provided a taste of Chinese history as he explained what makes the young people of China tick. At times the bigness of it all fe...

    This book gives the reader great insight in to the young Chinese millennials. I learned so much from reading this book. ...

    Interesting read. ...

    Surprisingly good and interesting, except that it doesn't cover the title. ...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest I'm going to be honest: I almost didn't read this book when I realized that the author was white. I've been burned on way too many "White Person Abroad" memoirs: the most recent was one about North Korea, and there was jus...

    Young China is such a terrific book! Thoroughly researched and incredibly interesting, this book will help you understand the touchstone issues the Jiu Ling Hou generation faces. ...

    The youth of China are detailed from grade school onto their early careers. Zak takes a conversational style to interview his subjects. There are many bits of Chinese history sprinkled throughout the book. I found China's rate of change fascinating, with each change in guard, the count...

    Dychtwald offers an introductory glimpse at modern living in China in his cohort. You will read about the meaning of life in 21st century China, and how it plays out in the daily lives of its million of citizens. one of the big points of the book is the importance of wealth and status ...

    Nonfiction book all about young people in China, told via both anecdotes and more big-picture assessments of China's politics, freedoms and limitations, demographics, cultural pressures, attitudes towards love, sex and gay rights, and the culture of "you scratch my back and I'll scratc...

    I've read a lot of books about China lately. This is one I'd strongly recommend. Americans, me included, spend a lot of time wondering and worrying about the potential threat China poses to our way of life. Reading this book might make us reconsider some of those anxieties. Chinese...

    This is a great book for people wanting to know what it is like to live in China, especially with the younger generation. It is easy to read, but it is like reading a memoir or even a textbook. I still don't think I understand how the younger generation is going to make China different...

    Dychtwald's writes well and his sentences have a neat flowing rhythm to them, although hejumps from topic to topic ? back and forth ? and does so even within the twelve loosely-bundled chapters of the book. 'Young China' feels like a loosely weaved net of anecdotes, which are ric...
