Magnesium Momma, November 4, 2014 (view all comments by Magnesium Momma)
I rarely pay full price for a book, but this one was worth it. It's well written and hard to put down. Reading it will not just inform you on Deng's incredible life, but help understand China's history and workings under Mao and Communism.
