Without bothering to get approval from the President, the State Department, or even the FTC, Dave Barry's publishers sent him to Tokyo. You'd think they would have known better. Now the word is Barry has set back our diplomatic relations with the whole Pacific Rim by a couple of decades. Japanese culture, dining, sport, and industry all come under Barry's relentless scrutiny. So if you think President Bush committed a social gaffe by losing his composure and his lunch in front of the Japanese Prime Minister, wait until you hear Barry's commentaries. And if you're planning a trip to Japan, don't leave home without Barry's pearls of wisdom about the mysterious East. This complete, unabridged recording is read by Arte Johnson.

    " Dave Barry revels in the humor of the absurd, and this book uses his family trip to Japan to find many opportunities to laugh at himself, American society, and human nature in general using Japanese culture as a context. The exception is the chapter giving his account of his visit to Hiroshima on the anniversary of the atomic bombing, which is poignant and somber and shows just how good a writer he really is. "

    " Though it was funny, the book took me awhile to read: There was no real point to it. "
