"Reading & Writing Chinese - Traditional Character Edition was of
particular interest given that Hong Kong still uses it over the
simplified Chinese employed in mainland China." -Randal van de
Woning, BWG blog
"Excellent reference book for beginning and Intermediate–level Chinese. Well laid out with several ways to look up characters. Common phrases are also listed with each character." -Goodreads
