I love writing and enjoying a glass of wine in Sydney.

This book got my attention as some of my teacher friends mentioned it after they returned from China. They said it contains a lot of good advice about teaching Chinese students. My friends found it very useful, so they tested it in Australia (Universities and TAFE), and the suggestions worked. It's always difficult to understand a foreign culture, yet with the help of this book my teaching friends no longer felt so stressed and annoyed when handling Chinese students. Yes, it really is MYTHBUSTING…

Mythbusting the Cult of Confucius: What the Chinese Really Are, How to Understand Them and Why We Need to
Mythbusting the Cult of Confucius: What the Chinese Really Are, How to Understand Them and Why We Need to


This book, written by Wayne Deeker (Australian writer), is a good resource for those teaching Chinese students, wanting to set up a business targeting the Chinese market, anyone studying or working in China, or considering a relationship.

But more than that, it really explains why Chinese do what they do and what makes Chinese people think the same. Since Australia has quite a number of international students and businesses, knowing how people from other cultures think has become increasingly important.

I strongly recommend this important book. You can find more information from here.

Happy reading.
