After writing my photo organization software and using it to classify and organize some 10,000+ photos, I realized I had a lot of pictures taken in China which might be of interest to more than just me. So in late 2019 I put some together with social commentary in book form, and used it as a Christmas present to friends and family.
I wouldn't say it shook the world up. In fact, it was a perennial leader on the NY Times Worst Seller list. Discounting the 20 or so copies I purchased as gifts, as of last time I checked 2 copies were sold, and no reviews posted. While I don't claim it is earthshattering, I do think it is better than this, and suggest anyone with the slightest curiosity give it a try - it isn't that expensive (and most of it goes to Amazon, believe me I'm not pushing it for mercenary reasons)
Critical praise for Both Stop and Go* (that might have been written if any critics had reviewed it)
- “…possibly the best book on China by a Connecticut ultimate frisbee player over 6 feet tall.”
- “Really communicates the feeling of looking at photographs of China!”
- “Well! That is a book!”
