Getting to know the ins-and-outs of Chinese culture and customs can be quite confusing if you're a recently emigrated expat or a tourist who's visiting the country for the first time. If you come with little knowledge of how some things are done here in China, things can get quite awkward in daily interactions with Chinese colleagues or friends. 

Yi. S. Ellis' book 101 Stories for Foreigners to Understand Chinese People, which she co-produced with husband Bryan D. Ellis, not only brings humor to an expat's experience of China, but also introduces readers to elements of Chinese culture, etiquette and interpersonal interactions.

This Charming Illustrated Book Will Help You Understand Chinese Culture

The writing is lively and easy to read, with quirky cartoon illustrations in each section adding some extra charm to the book. Each chapter is concise and covers a wide range of topics such as Chinese modesty, beliefs, business etiquette, food, drink, greetings and sayings. 

It's a great read for getting a grasp of the cultural differences between Chinese and Western norms that may at times be challenging to understand. Ideal for expats or tourists, readers can learn from the Ellis' experiences, appreciate cultural differences and open themselves up to new ways of viewing the world.
