An official blurb would probably state how Crichton explores Japanese and USA business relations and uses a thriller storyline to make it interesting. I'll just say that this book had a profound affect on how I viewed American and Japanese cultures and I wasn't thrilled with either one. Some of the story will be dated by the current Asian financial crisis, but this still ranks as one of my favorite Crichton titles.
