An Introduction to Korean Culture by John H. Koo is one of the best overall books on Korean Culture. It is a easy read and it covers many areas of the asian culture and how the Korean people have evolved. It is a good read for anyone working or living in Korea. Excellent writing...

The best book on Korean culture I have read.It is interesting and balanced in presentation with neither a foreigner's condensation nor a native's hyper national pride. The book reads well and draws the reader into the culture, history, values, customs, arts and people of Korea.

I am Korean and was expecting more details and descriptions. This was very generalized and a highlevel overview. The writing style is very basic and does not have any feeling. I wanted to get to know my Korean ancestry, but I was very disappointed.
