Summary

This is Shanghai is a first hand account of expat life in China's (and the world's) largest city. Like a guidebook, it helps newcomers and visitors discover the city; but instead of making quickly-outdated lists of restaurants and museums, Alexander Barrett takes you on a tour of the essential facets of existence in Shanghai. Follow him through the sometimes incredibly old, sometimes futuristic, and often just plain strange sights, sounds, and experiences he's come across in the first year of exploring the city. With its light, humorous style and sharp eye for those key details that explain the sprawling reality of a huge metropolis, this book is perfect for anyone who wants a friendly guide to Shanghai or just a window onto another, fascinating world.

Author Biography

He is rarely successful, but his work has appeared all over the internet, the streets, and the TVs of North America and Asia.
