I really didn't care for this book at all. Winchester seemed quite smug, copping a fair amount of anti-American attitude.

When I initially heard about this book, I wasn't going to read it because it was described as outdated. A Korean-American friend, who is teaching English in Korea, convinced me that I needed to read it. While it is definitely outdated (written in the mid-80s), it's a fascinating look at how vastly different South Korea was just a short time ago.
