Book Recommendation

If you are looking for a book to read I highly suggest Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng.

It is admittedly a pro-capitalist, anti-communism manifesto, but what makes it interesting is that it is a true story. The Author recounts her life in China during Mao Zedong’s “Cultural Revolution”.

There are some important life lessons to be learned from her story and at very least – the lesson to appreciate the Liberty we enjoy today.

Recommended to people across the political spectrum or for people who just want a good story to read.

    Sounds good. I may read it. I’ll definitely check it out.

    By the way, I read a book you might find interesting too.
    “Doubt: A History: The Great Doubters and Their Legacy of Innovation from Socrates and Jesus to Thomas Jefferson and Emily Dickinson”
    It’s about those who have questioned the religious beliefs of their time.

      Thanks for the recommendation. That sounds like something right up my alley. Heading to Amazon now.

      Edit: Bought the book. After reading a few of the reviews decided it should be the next book on my list. THANKS!
