Reviews - What do customers think about Keys to Chinese Character Writing?

Truly for a very specific group  Jan 6, 2008
Unless you're an absolute beginning learner of Chinese or extremely interested in the minute details of the written language, this book will be somewhat of a disappointment.

I learned Japanese for a year before moving on to Traditional Chinese, which most likely boots me right out of the intended demographic of this manual. It goes into great detail regarding the essentials, the pieces-parts, the make-up of Chinese characters but doesn't do much else. There are some drills, some write-what-you've-learned but nothing else. I was hoping for some really interesting etymological tidbits but I was sadly let down.

If you're just starting, go ahead and get it, but it will become obsolete quickly as your thought-processes change and you begin to naturally and effortlessly write even the most "complicated" Chinese characters.
