A book aimed at non-Chinese who have more than a pragmatic interest in Chinese handwriting, this book teaches you the beauty of calligraphy, and promises to deal with the different types of handwriting. Unfortunately, it doesn't go into enough detail. It's a beginner's book, and as such it is a good read. Lots of radicals and common characters are explained in a writer's context, which makes further study a lot easier.
