All in all, I think this is an excellent book for those studying Japan, Japanese language or even preparing for a trip and wanting to get more insight into the Japanese psyche.
I regularly visit a Japanese home, and never understood why they did this or that. Or why they insist on doing something. Making oneself feel ackward, but after reading this book I felt relief and more comfortable around them. If you are around Japanese people, or planning to, this is a must read.
