Book News Annotation:

A writer, journalist, and US millitary intelligence worker who has been involved in the middle east since the 1940s, De Mente offers guidance to Westerners on behaving themselves when in Japan. His topics include the vertical society, using titles, when and how to bow, dining etiquette, electronic etiquette, bath and toilet protocol, the importance of gift giving, the tea ceremony, the importance of the apology, dating, shrine and temple etiquette, people watching, name cards and how to exchange them, criticism taboos, and the pitfalls of praise. An introductory section explains how to pronounce the language, and a glossary explains terms and pronunciation. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
