Intelligent and engaging ... an excellent book for anyone with an interest in Japanese culture.
An elegantly arranged narrative that takes in everything from the mythical roots of sumo to the ubiquity of Shinto shrines.
An engaging and well-informed analysis of Japanese culture and society ...Readers fresh to Japanese studies will find something fascinating on every page; those more familiar with writing on Japan will appreciate the smaller details, many born of Macfarlane's rich comparative insights.
He triumphantly decodes this enigmatic country.
A must read for businesspeople and anyone planning a visit to this vibrant land.
