4.0 out of 5 stars Bagpipes! Japan! すごい!, 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Power of the Pipes (Paperback)
My book arrived yesterday and with the heavy rain and typhoon to follow it was such a lovely tale to keep me safe and warm at home. I have very little knowledge of the bagpipes but this is the story of people travelling the world, doing something they enjoy, and becoming international friends. Yes you could do that with many other instruments but with the bagpipes, everyone is welcome from the novice to the champion of champions! A book that will put fire in your heart and soul.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just an essay, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected a lot more from this book. It is basically an essay on the manner of archaeology in Japan. It won`t answer anything fundamental. The writing style improves through the book as the first couple of chapters are shoddy.

The title most definitely does not reflect the content.

1.0 out of 5 stars Strictly for beginners, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected a more informed essay on how to motivate people. A good starter book for school children interested in the subject but there is nothing new or inspired in the pages. Mostly can not be applied world wide and does not touch on the fact the US society has been indulged with non-stop subliminal messages since the 50`s..

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than many modern explanations, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the difficultly of gathering information. This book explains clearly aspect of Japanese mindset which many books written in the modern age fail to do. Anyone wanting to gain further understanding of the way of thinking would benefit greatly form this book.
