Review by Ben Bullock

This reference contains, in order of descending frequency, the 1000 most important character compounds appearing in Japanese newspapers.

Not much more than a list of the compounds, I borrowed this from the library but did not have enough energy to work through it. This book is probably too boring for all but the most dedicated students of Japanese.
