    Dave Barry Seized Japan by Storm !!!

    I saw this book on a bookstore's shelf when I visited Japan 5 years ago. At that time I actually looked for books which would enhance my knowledge of Japan, and I bought this book simply because it has the word 'Japan' on its cover. But what did I know...as soon as I open the book, I was drowned in my tears of laughters, and I ended up being the biggest fan of Mr. Barry's books just because this book. I proceeded to hunt every other book that Mr. Barry ever wrote, and I even buy some of his books through this very own internet bookstore. I would recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a light reading after a stressful day, because it sure can put a smile on your face.

    Highly Recommend

    CAUTION! you will need Kleenex, and be close to the bathroom, as usual Dave Barry is hiliarious! Funny is not an adequate description of his humor. I laugh so hard, people around me begin to leave, or think I have lost my mind. He just has a way with words.Buy this book!

    Really funny and mostly true

    I've lived in Japan and visited often. My friend was only there for a few days. We both roared and guffawed (Barry's work lacks the subtlety of a giggle). Barry weaves true facts and keen observations with only a little exaggeration to capture the experience of a foreigner in the mix of traditional and modern that characterizes Japan.

    The one not to miss!

    I am French and this is the first and only book I have ever read of Dave Barry. I was in Japan for a year when an American friend introduced me to this book. Everything Dave tells in the book about Japan is so true, and the way he puts it is so funny that after redaing the book you will feel like you've been there yourself, and you will be floating in a river of tears from laughing so much! I love this book and read it several times already. I now want to buy more books via the net, but I don't really know which are the best!

    Makes traveling to Japan especially enjoyable

    Dave Barry takes on Japan, and has a blast. Very funny book that prepared my wife and I for our recent trip. A fairly accurate assessment of what the typical tourist will encounter.
