Provides a truly broad scope of China and how it perceives itself and it's place in the world. (And why ! )
I will listen to the book again because all of it is worthy of total understanding.
The broad scope and the first person detail that is not apparent to the media "entertainers".
Insight into meetings, conferences, understandings, misunderstandings, and ambiguities.
How diplomacy is really conducted out of the public view and how it can be made to work for the mutual benefit of the various parties at different times, place and geopolitical balancing.
An excellent presentation of China / US / and world geopolitics.
A full study about how the youth of modern civilization is unprepared for the ancient savagery of war.
It is also a view into the politics of the military service and it's "imbalances".
The politics of phony engagement and battle-damage reporting.
God bless the U.S.Marines and their standards.
A two person mediated interview between the author and the "Audible" reader that was more of a "love-fest" than informative about the book.
Free is OK and worth it.
