    Unique Perspective Into Japanese Culture

    If you've ever been interested in how the Yakuza does business in Japan (their relationship to the police, the media, and the government) or just interested in Japan in general, this book is for you. Written by Jake Adelstein (the first ever foreign journalist to work in Japan's largest newspaper), the biography flies by, leaving you increasingly shocked and amazed at each new twist in the true-life story.

    Tokyo

    The author has indeed shown us inner working of Japanese mafia. However, it is felt that the attempt by author to point out activities which he attributes as unique to Japanese mafia is based on a wrong judgement. From a third party view it can be only seen as Japanese flavour of International crime tactics. Sometimes it is evident that the author had not fully disclosed many incidents (or side stories) (in detail) to protect himself /others. An informative book for those who would like to know more about Japan and would like to stay there.
