I simply loved it. I dare anyone who reads this comment has to read the book also. Unless you already read Warriors and Wailers. I liked reading about the illegal jobs, but want a royal job. Trust me, i am not bad.

This book was extremely enjoyable. I gives an insight into ancient Chinese culture. Learning about my own background is important, and this book definitely gave me a starting point. It was very interesting to find many jobs that would be shunned from today's society. This book is a great read, and I would recommend it to anybody, especially teachers that are teaching Ancient Civilizations. (Like my old teacher)
