This is an excellent book for those who have studied Japanese but have found a few thorny problems. Beautifully written, light in touch but with some sharp and erudite observations. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Let's face it, if you're reading this review, you're already learning japanese. Furthermore you're reading an english review of a book written in english. Which means that your mothertongue is probably alien to japanese. These two facts combined, guarantee frustration as you gradually have come to realise that the road will be long and that the obstacles are seemingly unsurmountable.

The first is undoubtedly true. The latter is not. This book is testimony to that. Whereas an ordinary textbook teaches you and hopes that insight will gradually grow. This book makes it its mission to provide you the insight and hopes that this will give you the extra push needed to scale some mountains.

However, make no mistake, the road will still be long.

Great for those wishing the understand the language more deeply or go into translation. Breaks things down and gives examples. Lots of humour included!

Interesting book. Very good. I doubt there's another with this material, and it's very well written and entertaining. Filler. Filler.
