    In sumptuous and illuminating detail Simon Winchester chronicles the extraordinary story of Joseph Needham, the brilliant Cambridge scientist who turned his eccentric genius on the study of China.

    David Ewing says: "Great for Winchester Fans"
    "Endless detail, too little story"

    What did you like best about The Man Who Loved China? What did you like least?

    I liked the subject matter of Needham's fascination with China and his adventures in that country, but the story got lost under the mountain of unnecessary facts.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Winchester’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But I've read other books and enjoyed them. He always includes a lot of detail, but in other works, those details don't overwhelm the story the way they did in this book.
