From the sneakily successful travel series with over 1,000,000 copies in print, here is the pocket-sized guide that combines verbal self-defense with cultural insight. Specifically focused on getting in, getting around, and getting the deal done, “Wicked Japanese” prepares the gaijin (that’s you) for a world so alien that just wearing the wrong necktie can spell certain death to the bargain you flew 18 hours to seal.
Impress your host with your politeness–and recite the correct apology for grazing a stranger with your sleeve: Buchoho de makoto ni moshiwake gozaimasen (“Sorry to have injured you with my stupid clumsiness”). And if planning to work for a Japanese company, show that you’re a team player: Yumei na daigaisha no hitotsu no hagurama ni nalitai (“I wish to be a tiny cog in a huge and honorable machine”). 93,000 copies in print.
