Here is a must read for anyone living in Taiwan, thinking of coming to Taiwan, or just interested in learning more about Taiwan.
Tawain A to Z: Essential Cultural Guide
By Amy Liu
During our first trip to Taipei, we visited PageOne a giant bookstore in Taipei 101 where we found this book. Organized like an encyclopedia, this book walks your though the customs and cultural traditions of Taiwan. Amy Liu is a Taiwanese, who spent most of her youth in America. She understands the perspectives of both Taiwanese and foreigners. She shares, in a very non-bias way, the traditions of her country. The book features beautiful photographs and uses both Pinyin and Chinese characters for further understanding and study. It has been extremely insightful and helpful in our understanding of daily interactions with our co-workers and students.
