A young American arrived in Beijing in spring, 2006 with little money, no friends, no job, and little knowledge of the language or culture. Within a year, he knew the language, had a fulfilling social life, wide connections and many interesting jobs. This book follows David Williams' incredible journey through modern China. He goes into detail about the freedoms that he feels in China, gives hard facts about the amount of violence and crime in the U.S. compared to China, and talks about the safe feeling he has living in China. He goes into detail about the incredibly low cost of living that he has living in China. He also tells about the way new Chinese friends have welcomed him, why Chinese women make such great girlfriends or wives, and why Chinese cuisine is healthier than American food. The most interesting and at times hilarious part of this book though, is the description of the many types of job opportunities that he has experienced in the Middle Kingdom. He works as a pastor at a Chinese wedding, becomes a foreign modeling and acting agent, and works on numerous TV commercials, shows, infomercials, exhibitions, and modeling shows. He works as an actor in an American movie with a well-known action star.
