ReviewsEdit

According to Prof. Charles Tang, "Ngai’s book New Poetry Writing Methods has a clear elaboration on the concept of modern poetry, he has also given profound views on how to write modern poems. This may be attributed to Ngai’s years of teaching experience as a teacher, making it clear and easy to understand." — Wen Xue Ping Lun(2014)[12]

Mo Yu, chief editor of the Taiwanese literature magazine Li Shi Kan, commented: "Ngai's children's poem Yinghuochong is full of the fun and joy of childlike innocence. In the poem, the writer used stars as a metaphor for fireflies. The poem is not just written for children, but also for adults, arousing their long-lost memory of childhood." — Li Shi Kan (2016)[4]
