    robert whiting wrote three, maybe four books about baseball and japan. i can only praise the two i read…you gotta have wa and the meaning of ichiro. he weaves so much together; history, marketing, religion and what not and i think whiting is a reporter, so there’s lots of dirt uncovered as well.
