Get to grips with the culture of the language.

You could argue that the title of this book is misleading. I think most people would be expecting this book to teach some actual Japanese, but it is important to point out that that isn't really the case. Although there is some language learning in there, the title pertains more to the actual culture of the Japanese language and the varying frameworks in which it is spoken. If learning protocol is what you are after then you will find this book helpful. It will help with pronunciation - in particular mastering tone and inflection - and modifying your Japanese to make it appropriate for different social settings e.g formal or informal. There are tests at the end of each chapter which were useful, too. One bug-bear though is the lack of indexing - it makes it hard to navigate through the book without flicking through each individual page. This hinders using the book as a quick reference, which it could easily be. You can get around this by book marking favourite parts but still, an index shouldn't have been overlooked.
