Disappointing. Not well written, not insightful. Both the data and theory are pretty shoddy.

Not much of a book here. I was quite excited to read this.. By the end of the introduction I could see that I was not in expert hands. The theory and data are pretty lightweight. Feels more like a line for Mathews' CV, rather than a serious attempt to say something. I think he has things to say about Japan, but not in this book.
Not for sure

I'm not for sure about this book. I got it for my daughter for her college classes that she sent me a list of books she needs for the up coming semester in the winter for her spring classes. I'm guessing she likes it. She getting good grades in the class and hasn't said anything to me about any problems with the book.
