Misleading cover reviews
I believe there's a good story here to be told, unfortunately Mr. Mezrich is not up to the task. His writing is sophomoric at best and filled with tired old cliches. His major interest seems to be the Japanese sex trade and not in true story and character development. I was taken in by the book cover reviews which I believe were vastly overblown and over rated.

Rehash of movie 'Boiler Room'
If you have seen the movie 'Boiler Room', this book contains very little additional information. The movie could have been the inspiration for the book. Instead of New York and Long Island, the book takes place in Tokyo and Osaka. Same type of people, just different names. The writting is about as good as that of the average journalist.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
