I was born in ‘84 and I can remember as a child hearing my father talk about Japan and the Japanese and how they made most of the electronics we used. I always assumed Japan would be the super power in the future. With the rise of China as a world super power in the late ’90s and past decade my thought about the Japanese future were pretty dormant. This book woke those feelings, interesting. It’s almost like looking at an alternate reality that was so close to fruition in our own.
