    In The Japanese Mind, Roger Davies offers Westerners an invaluable key to the unique aspects of Japanese culture.   

    Listeners of this book will gain a clear understanding of what makes the Japanese, and their society, tick. Among the topics explored: aimai (ambiguity), amae (dependence upon others' benevolence), amakudari (the nation's descent from heaven), chinmoku (silence in communication), gambari (perseverance), giri (social obligation), haragei (literally, "belly art"; implicit, unspoken communication), kenkyo (the appearance of modesty), sempai-kohai (seniority), wabi-sabi (simplicity and elegance), and zoto (gift giving), as well as discussions of child-rearing, personal space, and the roles of women in Japanese society.  

    All in all, this book is an easy-to-use introduction to the distinguishing characteristics of Japanese society; an invaluable resource for anyone - business people, travelers, or students - perfect for course adoption, but also for anyone interested in Japanese culture.

    Bad Pronunciation of Japanese terms

    Very monotone delivery which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The reading is clear but the Reader was not very familiar with how the Japanes language sounds which leads to some jarring readings.

    Very interesting, equally dry

    This would be a great book to discuss for a class and I enjoyed it as a solo read. However if you only have a mild interest in japan you’ll burn out before you finish.
