Abstract:

"Rowan Simons has lived in China for over twenty years and Bamboo Goalposts is his amusing and insightful account of what it's like to live, work and play there. He presents and works with Beijing TV and runs his own media company, but his real passion is getting China to embrace amateur football. Which isn't easy in a country where for decades it was illegal for more than ten people to congregate for the purposes of a recreational sporting activity. No other book communicates more clearly, more humorously and more affectionately what contemporary China is like when viewed through Western eyes"--Pub. description.
