This is a big book and heavy going, for me it has to be read a bit at a time. Cannot give a full comment as I need to have a rest every few chapters! It I would say a book for those who are interested in Japan, who have never been there and know nothing of the early history of Japan. To be honest I have been reading it on and off for several months and am enjoying it that way, it has lots of detail which I find I enjoy in small doses. I'm still in the dark ages??
