I noticed one of the reviewers is named McCrackin - that's a joke, right? Actually, this is a pretty harmless little book, despite its somewhat racist/scatalogical title. Mr. Ward, the author, taught high school English in Taiwan for many years, and this is his tribute to the people and nation of Taiwan. It begins with a brief geography lesson, and the book itself is about the history of Taiwan with some personal anecdotes thrown in for good measure, along with some 1960s-era Communist Chinese bashing. The title is what prompted me to buy the book - when I first saw it, I thought, "What on earth? I have got to find out what this is all about." The book is only about 100 pages long (I am assuming it is out of print). All in all a charming little book - makes a good conversation piece too! ("You're reading WHAT?")
The author was my geography teacher in 1970. I love the way this book is written. The book depicts our lives in Taiwan, with such a good sense of humor. Anyone who travels or lives abroad will get a big kick out of this book.
