In the middle of August, the publishers of my second book sent complementary copies of the book to the chiefs of 36 trade and representative offices in Taipei, together with a covering letter. So far, just one of them has responded:
Dear Mr Crook
Thank you for sending us a complementary copy of your latest book "Dos & Dont's in Taiwan".
We shall not fail to recommend this book to Swiss community members in Taiwan and people interested in getting to know more about Taiwan's culture and customs. The practical and useful information can contribute greatly to the better understanding of the daily way of life in Taiwan.
Director, Trade Office of Swiss Industries (TOSI)
