Recommended HK-related Books
This is just a list of books that I can recommend if, like me, you are more interested in the lesser-known aspects of Hong Kong. It’s by no means a comprehensive list and I will keep adding as and when I find more worth recommending.
These books provide valuable information that cannot be readily found in amongst the usual tourist/guide literature (of which HK has a dearth – all saying the same old stuff).
If anyone has any recommendations please let me know so I can follow them up and add them to the list. It’s a bit of a mish-mash but it’s all stuff I have enjoyed reading whether it’s about culture, history, walks, finance or personal memoir – all have something to offer in terms of insight.
I’ll keep adding to it as and when.
