Highly recommended--Nien Cheng--Life and Death in Shanghai


I first read an excerpt in Time Magazine.

In 2014 or so, I read the whole book.

It was my privilege and honor to meet and interview Nien Cheng in c1998. 

1997-2001 I worked at Radio Free Asia and was job harassed by the jerk boss of the Burmese section and his two women so-called editors when my programs became very popular in Burma.

Subsequently, I saw Nien Cheng's autographed photo in 2001 in a psychiatrist's office and he (Michael Hurd) also interviewed me on his Michael Hurd Show, for radio.
