Japan - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture - Paul Norbury

When I opened the package I was surprised that the book was so small. In fact, it is literally a Pocket Book, which is one of the highlights of this little book. I love its size!


At the beginning I was not entirely convinced. It looked like it was a recollection of facts, like the author collect several articles about the history of Japan and that's it. Then, when it starts to discuss about Japan's culture, customs, etc., is when the book starts to get really interesting. I learnt a lot of new things, which is excellent cuz I've read so many books about Japan, and it never ceases to surprise me to learn new little facts about this awesome country.


This book is mostly for foreign people who is going to live in Japan because of work. There are a lot of tips, like how to act in an office or a meeting. I loved this little book!
