This is a perfect powerful yet pocketsized introduction to Japanese aesthetics.As the author explains the style of the book will be free flowing yet with a definite goal in mind:that being an explanation of many elusive and unique japanese concepts.
This 'small' book in my opinion gives the finest poetic explanation of the term wabi-sabi you can find,other writers tend to get mired in newage piffle or minimalist nonsense.Very nice explanation of MONO NO AWARE-that certain sadness of things.I could not recomend it more highly.
