Scott, thank you for coming on to the podcast.
Your book “Why Be Happy? The Japanese Way of Acceptance” articulated an aspect of Japanese culture I was aware of but hadn’t deeply contemplated. I really enjoyed reading it and it gave me valuable insight into something that has recently greatly benefitted my life - acceptance. So thank you for writing it.
