My Country And My People

吾国吾民

It is a book written by Mr. Lin Yutang in 1935. This is a very good book helps you understand China. It covers most things of Chinese normal life.

Interestingly, it helps me, a person from China, understand his home country better. I know most of the things, such as Chinese women’s life, the tea-drinking tradition, Mr. Lin talked about. Those are so common to my life that I have never tried to understand their meaning and influence to me. Mr. Lin, with profound knowledge to both the East and the West, refreshed my view to many things about China by this book.
