2.0 out of 5 stars Poor organization, not much depth March 20 2000
Format:Paperback
The book is organized alphabetically by the chinese slang words, which is not useful to me. I can imagine this being useful if you speak mandarin well and are trying to figure what somebody was saying, but for a reasonable new student, this organization killed the book for me.
Each phrase or word is given only a short paragraph of description, and there is almost no other text. It is very dry.
The computer terms at the end are useful since they are sorely missing from every other chinese reference I've seen. The book could be worth it for that.
If you're looking for an introduction to Chinese slang, get Wang's other slang book, Outrageous Chinese, which is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good supplement April 16 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a useful reference for those who want to jazz up their vocabularies in Chinese, and the annotations help you learn a bit more about contemporary Chinese culture (not always good!). Worth adding to your China library.
