Author’s Comment:
"As a black man in Taiwan, I have seen and experienced some of the most beautiful times ever. Coming from one of the most culturally rich and diverse cities in the world, New York City, it was indeed difficult for me to get used to life in Taiwan, but I’m happy I came here. I dedicate this book to my wife, who has helped me throughout and always encouraged to me look at the good in everything."
