David Duff was born in the United States but has spent the last twelve years living in Kyoto, Japan. He is an English teacher and avid lover of beer, darts, Jimi Hendrix, and Japanese women.
Does this publisher not employ a single editor?

As stated above, this book takes on the rather lofty task of attempting to share some insight into why many of us westerners find Japanese women so special.
This is a subject that I'm sure many authors have thought about before but for whatever reason, none have tackled. As to why, eludes me. However that is precisely the reason this book is so special. Search elsewhere and you will find no paucity of dry, cold, and didactic literature that will safely examine subjects related to Japan.

Upon reading it, it dawned on me. This is an instant classic.
Out of all the books I've ever read on Japan, not one has had the honesty to come forth and say what this man has said here. And for that, I congratulate him.
You are one wild and crazy warrior Mr. Duff!
