Kata by Boye Lafayette De Mente

Book Description

Literally the form and order of doing things in Japan, 'kata' is the cultural conditioning that causes the Japanese to think and react in the way they do. The secret to understanding Japanese business, culture, and society is explained by this cultural framework upon which Japanese behaviour and etiquette is built. This book explains the concept of kata and offers the reader insight into the art of bowing, the importance of apology, and other key cultural ideas.
