    I think I will give this book a full five stars I would never claim it is perfect, but it meets my criteria, at least, of it was amazing Perhaps I loved it would be a better measure of five stars here on Goodreads If your aim is to provide a reader with a rich, rewarding, readable and fabulously illustrated introduction to early China, from the early Shang kings to the Tang Dynasty of the 7th to 9th centuries A.D., I cannot conceive any better way of achieving it.I ve probably expressed i I think I will give this book a full five stars I would never claim it is perfect, but it meets my criteria, at least, of it was amazing Perhaps I loved it would be a better measure of five stars here on Goodreads If your aim is to provide a reader with a rich, rewarding, readable and fabulously illustrated introduction to early China, from the early Shang kings to the Tang Dynasty of the 7th to 9th centuries A.D., I cannot conceive any better way of achieving it.I ve probably expressed it elsewhere, but it bears repeating We are a poorer world for the loss of Time Life books

    Thoroughly holistic, genuine in its love of the rainbow of humanity, poignant, quirky, and most of all, provides an intimate portrait of Ancient China, of its people.
