Thank You and OK!: An American Zen Failure in Japan 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

This book is great for two different kinds of readers. First, it is a very funny look at the clash between cultures, as one of the other reviewers put, almost like a science fiction novel. The other group of readers are folks who like stories from the cloister, tales about what happens to messed up human beings when they try to band together for a higher purpose. This book was a joy. I highly recommend it.
