More About the Author

Boyé Lafayette De Mente has been involved with Japan, China, Korea and Mexico since the late 1940s as a member of a U.S. intelligence agency, student, journalist, editor and author working out of Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico City. He is a graduate of Jochi University in Tokyo, and The American Institute for Foreign Trade (in 1953), now Thunderbird School of Global Management, in Glendale, Arizona, USA.

De Mente wrote the first ever books on the Japanese way of doing business (Japanese Etiquette and Ethics in Business in 1959 and How to Do Business in Japan in 1962), and was the first to introduce the now commonly used Japanese terms wa, nemawashi, kaizen, tatemae-honne, shibui, sabi and wabi to the outside business world!

His 70-plus other books run the gamut from language learning to the night-time "pink" trades in Japan, the sensual nature of Oriental cultures, male-female relations, and understanding and coping with the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican mindset in business and social situations.He has also written extensively about his home state of Arizona and Mexico.

De Mente's printed and ebook titles [all available from Amazon.com] include:

This book is riddled with gramatical and typographical errors. Almot to the point that makes it difficult to read.

Not worth the paper it's written o.

Nice Overview 15 Jun. 2010
By OCD Foodie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book provides a good solid overview of cuisine in Japan and is helpful when one wants to identify different foods. The restaurant referrals are sparse so other sources would need to supplement that information.

Too Tokyo specific 18 Nov. 2009
By Crazy88Line Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having recently moved to Japan I was excited about getting this book as a helpful guide to various foods and restaurants. The food descriptions are excellent and very useful as a guide to what you can get,however the book is a big let-down when it comes to where you can get certain things. The vast majority of restaurants listed are in Tokyo;as if all of Japan was Tokyo,so unless you are strictly going to be in that area use the book only as a general guide. The listing of menu items in the back is very helpful but you will have to rely on another source of information to find places that serve what you are looking to eat outside the Tokyo area.

Excellent resource but could use an editor. 28 July 2009
By Noah Kadner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There's a ton of great information buried in this book. If you're going to Japan and are curious about the cuisine you'll learn a lot. My one caveat is it reads like a first draft for a book. Lots of typos, repeated sentences, etc. Feels very rushed.
