    It's clear that the panda itself is the only part of the species' story that should be presented in black and white. (June) Publishers Weekly. Nicholls is surely set to become an author of many more fascinating science books. In many ways, this book is what good science writing is all about—explanation through a ripping narrative. the way of the panda. 18 january Henry Nicholls's "curious history" of the giant panda is a curious book in both senses: avid in its thirst for things panda, and eccentric in its construction, arguments, and attitudes. It's all the better for both its curiosities.

    The giant panda first came to Western notice in the mids, and author relates exciting tales of those early encounters. For the next years, naturalists argued about whether this huge animal with its distinctive markings was more closely related to the raccoon, whose markings were somewhat similar, or the bear. Way of the Panda is a Rider-Waite-inspired deck, reimagining tarot archetypes through the perspective of pandas, vivid scenes of nature, and elements of magical realism. Through the 78 cards of tarot, the pandas from the Panda Kingdom will show you how to walk the adorable Way of the Panda and just how panda-tastic your life can be.

    In , I published The Way of the Panda, a popular science-cum-history book that lays out the intertwined fortunes of giant pandas and modern China as they made their respective ways towards zoological and economic world domination. In it, I reached the conclusion that captive pandas are deceptive beasts, having more in common with the cuddly.   Claws of the Panda tells the story of Canada’s failure to construct a workable policy towards the People’s Republic of China. In particular the book tells of Ottawa’s failure to recognize and confront the efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to infiltrate and influence Canadian politics, academia, and media, and to exert control over Canadians of Chinese Reviews:

The life of a panda and its journey into the Chinese society is what makes the panda "the panda". This is a great book for understanding more about the Chinese culture and the panda that formed it. In this book the writer conveys their thoughts and research on how they believe that the panda helped form the Chinese society/5.

Very interesting story tracing the way of the panda, from an almost unknown obscure animal to the face of WWF and an iconic symbol of China.

The author has most certainly done his research and frequently digresses down political topics and other historical tidbits that somehow vaguely connects with the way of the panda/5(14).
