Whether you are coming to Shenzhen for a day trip, for business, or something else, Shenzhen: The Book is the only resource you’ll ever need to make the most of your time in Shenzhen

Shenzhen moves quickly. New skyscrapers sprout-up with no warning. Imagine how long it would take you to discover the nuances of this ever changing city. Nearly no one that lives in Shenzhen was born in Shenzhen. 

It is fair to say that even the local cab drivers, aren’t familiar with much of what you will find in Shenzhen: The Book. Even more, the authors, Karen & Ted Rule, are true authorities on Shenzhen—they've known Shenzhen since before it was a city. 

Ted & Karen first laid eyes on Shenzhen in 1971 when they took a taxi to the Lok Ma Chau police station in Hong Kong’s New Territories. Not much was there. 

Since then, Shenzhen exploded into one of the most modern Chinese Mainland cities, while—at the same time—it’s the fastest growing city in the world

Karen was originally a historian by training and she immersed herself in the fascinating but little known history of the area. Ted expanded his already considerable waistline by sampling the culinary delights and sneakily recording them. And thus this tome was born. 

Where else are you going to get the kind of insights and perspective then from a couple who experienced the unfathomable growth of Shenzhen from the beginning of China’s economic reforms and Shenzhen’s boom?
