    Description

    There is an ancient Chinese proverb that states, "Two tigers cannot share the same mountain." However, in East Asia, there are three tigers on that mountain: China, Japan, and Korea, and they have a long history of turmoil and tension with each other. 

    In his latest entertaining and thought-provoking narrative travelogue, Michael Booth sets out to discover how deep, really, the enmity is between these three "tiger" nations and what prevents them from making peace. Currently, China's economic power continues to grow, Japan is becoming more militaristic, and Korea struggles to reconcile its Westernized South with the dictatorial Communist North. 

    Booth, long fascinated with the region, travels by car, ferry, train, and foot, experiencing the people and culture of these nations up close. No matter where he goes, the burden of history and the memory of past atrocities continue to overshadow present relationships. Ultimately, Booth seeks a way forward for these closely intertwined, neighboring nations.

    An enlightening, entertaining and sometimes sobering journey through China, Japan, and Korea, Three Tigers, One Mountain is an intimate and in-depth look at some of the world's most powerful and important countries.

    Not much new here if you are already familiar

    More or less this book seems like an excuse for the author's publisher to fund a trip around Asia. Part basic history, part observational travel, The author points out some of the basic historical conflicts between these nations, cites basic demographic data, and travels. (Spoiler alert- he likes Japan which he is already familiar, and doesn't seem to enjoy Korea or China) Not much here if you are already familiar with these historical issues or have traveled to Asia yourself. However, I did very much enjoy the narrator!

    Good book some minor inaccuracies

    Intresting history done in a way that is pretty unique. The author did make some minor mistakes with regards to the Korean peninsula, but overall I liked it.

    Definitely worth listening to!

    Super interesting, clearly written and easy to follow. The author has a lively way of experiencing culture that makes you feel right in the middle of it and at times, made me laugh out loud. After listening to thus, I whish I could go meet the tigers myself. Most of all, this audiobook contains history worth knowing.
