The San Francisco Chronicle recently published a nice review
The Transpacific Experiment. My book is jointly reviewed alongside the new book by Larry Diamond, a Stanford political science professor who I saw lecture as an undergrad, and it capped off with this kind quote:
“Judging by his intelligent first book, Sheehan is a reporter we’ll look to in years ahead as we try to understand the nuances of the ever-shifting China-U.S. relationship.”
I feel very, very lucky to be a part of these conversations today. Through all my early years in China it was my dream to be able to give something back to our understanding of that country, and hopefully help these countries understand each other a little bit better.
Yea, we’re in the middle of some very tense times right now, and there’s no easy resolution to the problems dividing the two countries today. My hope is that by taking on this task of building understanding and providing clear, well-grounded analysis, all of us can together nudge things in a more positive direction.
Ok, that’s enough for now. If you’ve purchased the book and would like to attend the launch party go ahead and send me that receipt for a shot at a complimentary ticket! Talk soon!
