What? A new book? About Japan? Well, yeah, but first I have to write it. Sold the proposal yesterday to Da Capo, major publisher, division of Hachette. All about the culture, day to day life, and habits of Japanese that lead to acceptance, a degree of conformity, and satisfaction.
Did you know that Japanese spend a lot less on medical care and have better outcomes than here in the land of plenty?
And that observation, silence, and communication through anticipation are central to social organization there?
So much to learn.
I have a year and change to write the book, which will be out in late Spring, 2020, just in time for Summer Olympics Tokyo.
