    Not so great a book.

    Informative, however much too much information. Given that this book was written by the mother, I became bored around chapter 10 with all the details of Iris' childhood. I get that Iris was brillant, and I will read her best seller, but I won't recommend The Woman Who Could Not Forget. Sorry

    A Japanese-American's view.

    I was born in Japan and was on my way to America when the invasion of Nanking took place. I could never come to grips with Japan's behavior in WWII. And to learn of Iris Chang's death was heart rending. To revisit it in her mother's book was like re-opening an old wound, but it strengthened my resolve to keep alive her mission to seek admission of guilt from Japan and compensation for the victims of the Nanking massacre. Healing can come about only when these steps are taken. Iris Chang is my hero.
