Mitchell Blatt is an intrepid travel writer, and an author of two top China guidebooks, who brings his readers deep into the cultures of the places he explores. (See my clips!)

Blatt vividly brings to life raw and authentic stories from China, Asia, and the rest of the world. As an author for top guidebooks, he takes his job seriously and feels a calling to introduce his readers to a city inside and out.
