Inhaltsangabe: Born on the eve of China’s Cultural Revolution, Ping Fu was separated from her family at the age of eight. She grew up fighting hunger and humiliation and shielding her younger sister from the teenagers in Mao’s Red Guard. At twenty-five, she found her way to the United States; her only resources were $80 and a few phrases of English.
Yet Ping persevered, and the hard-won lessons of her childhood guided her to success in her new homeland. Aided by her well-honed survival instincts, a few good friends, and the kindness of strangers, she grew into someone she never thought she’d be—a strong, independent, entrepreneurial leader.
“She tells her story with intelligence, verve and a candor that is often heart-rending.”
—The Wall Street Journal
“This well-written tale of courage, compassion, and undaunted curiosity reveals the life of a genuine hero.”
—Booklist (starred review)
“Her success at the American Dream is a real triumph.”
—The New York Post
From the Author: We are the co-authors of "Bend, Not Break." Our customer review section contains hundreds of reviews from people who have not read the book. Positive reviews are systematically voted down just minutes after they are posted by a mass of "reviewers" with no Amazon history. Major news organizations, both in print and online, have covered the situation. "The Persecution of Ping Fu" written by Harold Evans puts this cyber-war in excellent context. Joe Nocera, the New York Times op-ed columnist, published "Culture Revolutions Vigilantes", which further explains the situation. Our book also has received many wonderful reviews by readers and professional book reviewers. We do hope you will read and love it! Thank you for the understanding and support.
