    This book is very informative and covers many aspects of Japanese that a lot of people may overlook. There are a few spelling errors here and there but, nevertheless, it is still a good read.

    I have been studying Japanese language and culture for almost 2 years. I found this short volume entertaiining, informative, and well written. It is a supplimented to my other more class oriented books. The volumne can be read in an evening. The lessons to learn will take longer to digest. A lot of detail of the Japanese cutlture is reviled as he talks about the language. Wrapping ones head in Japaneseness is essental to learning the language.

    Though I've never been to Japan or U.S. I love language learning. While reading this book I feel I find a friend to communicate with. Those writings almost exactly reflex my thoughts of Japanese and English languages. Hah. Highly recommended to all language lovers, especially high school students like me.
  • Excellent essays into what makes Japanese so unique

    As a long time language learner and with a focus on Japanese I often take for granted the nuances I have picked up between Japanese and English. When someone asks me why something is said the way it is in Japanese I often have to sit back and think why that might be. With this series of essays on particulars of Japanese the author shines a light and explains many of these little gotchas in a clear manner. Anyone learning Japanese or just is curious in on Japanese particulars and are not afraid of learning in the process will find this book and the rest in the series to be valuable. I commend the author for making these available. They are short and precise and informative. Rare to find a gem like this thee days.
