"A provocative workbook for "decluttering the spirit"... An indispensable guide and reference for Americans wanting to understand Japanese culture and perspectives. Impressively well written, organized and presented, Japaneseness: A Guide to Values and Virtues is very highly recommended for community, corporate, and academic library collections."--John Taylor, Midwest Book Review

"Valuable for the way it lets us look at humanity through a specific cultural lens... Japaneseness: A Guide to Values and Virtues, deserves a read."--Kris Kosaka, The Japan Times

"The perfect introduction (or reintroduction) to many aspects of Japanese society you might find refreshing, fascinating or befuddling. Or at the very least, quintessentially Japanese."--JQ Magazine

"If you are a student of anything Japanese - whether you are someone who wants to do business with the Japanese, live amongst them or live with them... you need to read Japaneseness."--Andrew Joseph, It's A Wonderful Rife

4.5/5 Stars "Western professionals who work with Japanese professionals may better understand some of the dynamics during meetings. People who enjoy Japanese literature, manga, and films may find deeper understanding of how culture affects the characters and their actions."--Portland Book Review

"A fantastic guide to those who are both visiting Japan for the first time, as well as those who are adjusting to the lifestyle or differences in the work environment."--Japan Realm
