The new Insider’s Guide to Beijing came out a few weeks ago. It is a fairly massive tome and very good and quite well read in our world. I wrote a few pieces for it, including a rewrite of my first WSJ column. They ran that in the front as part of the introduction to the book, and this picture ran with it.

They asked me last year if I would pose for a photo and I said sure, then decided to get the kids into it. I felt weird standing there alone and posing. Odd to be on that side of a story. I went and yanked them all out of class for a photo shoot. Glad I did. The sunglasses are unfortunate, but whatcha gonna do?
