Product Details

Praise

“I loved American Shaolin.”—PJ O’Rourke

“An original and insightful book.”—Boston Globe

“Polly is an easy amateur to root for.”—Entertainment Weekly

“It takes a special kind of person to leave the comforts of Princeton University and move to rural China to smash his forearms against tree trunks. Meet Matthew Polly.”—NY Post

“I picked up American Shaolin and read it straight through. It is first rate. Polly’s book tells more about what’s going on in China and has more insights into the real China than anything in recent years. It is a wonderful true-life story with profound, behind-the-headlines observations about Chinese life. A tip of the Stetson to Matthew Polly.”—Dan Rather
