it was amazing

For me, this book took a while to get going--too much scholarship and too little scandal early on, I suppose. However, once author Mark D. West had finished setting the table in the book's second section (titled "Players"), I found Secrets, Sex, and Spectacle: The Rules of Scandal in Japan and the United States almost as enjoyable as his wonderful Law in Everyday Japan: Sex, Sumo, Suicide, and Statutes. West is a lively, witty writer, and Japanophiles will find much of interest in both books.
