I wish I had read this book while I was studying Japanese. While it is hardly intended to be a supplementary textbook to a language class, I found that many of its topics clarified gaps and longstanding questions that I've had about Japanese. I also found this book fairly approachable for my background with only minor linguistic training, and I think it would still be comprehensible and interesting for someone with no linguistic background at all, though some parts could likely be skipped.

Overall, this is an excellent textbook chockfull of information; I did not assign it to my class, but found it useful for data mining. Unfortunately, I disagree strongly with some of the analytical points, and could it not give it a full 5.
