This book is a book written in a scholarly format for linguists and others who study languages, but if you are able to look beyond that dry style, features many interesting insights to the Japanese people as inferred by the language. I found it to be quite interesting and gained a greater understanding of the culture and people from reading this little book. Also have to give great praise to the translator/annotator Umeyo Hirano, who is able to successfully convey in English even the most subtle points that the author tries to get across.
