Photographs and Information about Taiwan's Culture, Nature and People by Rich Matheson

Keeping Up With The War God

Steven Crook , writer of Taiwan’s Bradt Travel Guide and Taiwan Do’s and Dont’s, has revised and republished his first book “Keeping Up With The War God, Taiwan as it seemed to me: 1996-2001″ in Kindle e book format.

The publisher,, writes: “A blend of travel narrative and commentary, peppered with asides ranging from the caustic to the laudatory, Keeping Up With the War God is an exploration of Taiwan by a long-term resident who has often loved, and sometimes loathed, the island — but never felt bored there. A small but very insightful introduction to Taiwan from this well-respected writer. “

  1. Just wanted to drop a line to you as well saying it was nice meeting you. I had, in fact, seen this blog before and was always confused as to who Lief was and why he was posting Rich’s photos 🙂

    It makes more sense now.

  2. I know that is confusing. Lief in Taiwan is also confusing when people, understandably, don’t know my nickname is pronounced ‘life’ rather than the more common ‘leaf’ pronunciation.
