This book is funny, but it is also thoughtful, educational, and much more affectionate than you might think.
Basically it is a book full of funny examples of Chinglish - that strange Chinese version of the English language which occurs when the Chinese try to translate things from their own language into english. Mainly this happens when signs and public notices are translated for the benefit of tourists, and it can be pretty funny. Of course making a book about all these funny mistakes does involve poking fun at the people who wrote them, to an extent, but this book also includes many endearing examples, and features lots of commentary explaining where the mistakes arise from, which ultimately provides a great introduction to Chinese culture and language at the same time as providing a constant stream of laughs...
