Synopses & Reviews
Learning to Bow has been heralded as one of the most insightful books about the clash of American and Japanese cultures. Bruce Feiler recounts the year he spent teaching inside Japan's renowned school system: watching boys and girls learn gender roles, experiencing the impact of strict school rules, and understanding the roots of Japan's business success.
"Feiler's first book ... is warm, intimate, and often very funny,
bringing much-needed insight into Japanese grass-roots culture and
the role of education in that land."
