Review by Ben Bullock

Small but expensive books dealing with various subtleties of Japanese usage, mostly use and misuse of respect language. Each chapter is taken from an old Japan Times newspaper column, and consists of a two page story about Mr. Lerner and some blunder or mistake that he makes when trying to speak Japanese.
