    1. So I was browsing through audiobooks at the public library, looking for something about Japan that wasn't about the years surrounding WWII - BTW definitely not as easy as I thought it would be. Found this and saw that it features none other than Sir Ben Kingsley on the ones and twos. That gilded voice made me feel like I was learning about the way of the kami at a fancy-but-stuffy royal garden luncheon. The book itself was a bit of a slog at times, but it did present a wealth of information in a [...]


    2. I found this to be a rather interesting read, though I preferred the earlier parts of the book that focused more upon Shinto and Buddhism in Japan than the later half that was more about the new religions. Though that was interesting, it felt more broad.I enjoyed Ben Kingsley's narration, as well as the various Japanese readers.

Nevertheless, the information is clearly presented, aided by voices other tha [...]


    4. The only negative comes from the Audio formatting. They used Japanese people with heavy accents for some of the reading. This made it difficult in some parts to understand. Otherwise it was very informative and I would recommend it to everyone.
