Deep insight. Easy reading. Neophyte or old hand, you’ll learn much for your next negotiation in Tokyo. Graham and Sano’s unique collaboration has produced a book that’s indispensable for anyone doing business with the Japanese.

Seldom does one come across a book that so successfully bridges the world of theory and the world of practice. Graham and Sano not only prove that academic research and practical knowledge can be melded together, but in the process they also provide us with insights and guidelines that would take any individual businessperson a lifetime of experience to gain.

An articulate, fast-reading book that is must reading for businesspeople on either side of the Pacific.
