The CS team is pumped that our print books are now shipping on Amazon.com and to your favorite local bookstores! Digital versions on Kindle and iBooks are also available (updated January 2018).

China Simplified: History Flashback took us five years to conceive, research, and create. Our original goal was to create a entertaining yet insightful journey (under 200 pages) through 5,000 years of Chinese history and culture. The final print version weighs in at only 183 pages, with plenty of illustrations by our talented designer Yang Kanzhen. This lighthearted read will help you make sense of the traditional yet modern enigma that is today’s China.

China Simplified: Language Empowerment explores the Mandarin language as a window into the culture, to demystify China and its people. Originally released as a digital book under the title China Simplified: Language Gymnastics, this revised and reissued collection of stories also offers guidance on how to become a more effective Mandarin speaker while having huge fun along the way.

If you buy the books, don’t forget to leave us a comment online, even if it’s a grumpy one. (But we think you’ll like them.)
