A Chinese language textbook featuring the hottest dating show in China, Fei Cheng Wu Rao (If You Are the One), was published Saturday in Nanjing, the Nanjing Daily reported.

Designed for foreign learners, the textbook focuses on the experiences of 16 male guests on the show. The topics include issues encountered by young Chinese people today, such as male chauvinism, only-children, housewives and relationships with in-laws.

If You Are the One, produced by Jiangsu Satellite Television since 2010, is the most popular TV dating show in China. It has produced several episodes specially for foreigners, and reportedly is the most popular Chinese-language TV show among foreign audiences.

Universities in six countries, including the US, Canada and Japan, will use the textbook.
