A friend of mine sent me a free copy of this novel, Yellow on the Outside, Shame on the Inside: Asian Culture Revealed, and I must say that this is by far the best eBook that I've ever read. In fact, it's probably the best book that I've ever read (though Jane Eyre will always be on top). I rarely finish a book these days because of stupid homework but I finished this one in just one day. I even made my roommate pick up food for me because I didn't want to waste any time away from reading. LOL Anyway, this book is about the real truths in regards to Asian culture, truths unbeknownst to many, like why Asians are always getting high grades, why they can't drive (like me haha) Here's the synopsis below:
Why do Asians really get straight A's? Why do Asians really become doctors and lawyers? Why do Asians really play the piano? Many people believe that the reason has to do with the pressure to perform and the pressure to conform, however, it goes much deeper than that—much, much deeper! This didactic novel reveals the truths about Asian culture, which will shock you to the marrow of your bones—and open a hidden world of long-guarded secrets.
I would highly recommend this book. The author lists his website for a free download: http://ansonchi.webng.com/
