This is a concise and user friendly book for learning polite spoken Japanese or written Japanese. Respect language; the special style of polite spoken or written Japanese is involved almost every exchange of Japanese between one person and another, including the simplest phrases of greeting. An understanding of its forms is therefore essential to any serious student of the Japanese language.

P.G. O'Neill's books on the Japanese language are considered standards in the subject and include An Introduction to Written Japanese as well as Respect Language in Modern Japanese.

In the end, this is not a book you should sit down and read all at once. Like the book itself suggests, if there is a section you are interested in, you should read that section and save the rest for a later date. And one read through will not magically enable to you be a master at keigo. However, as far as English language keigo lessons go, it's really in depth and covers just about everything an intermediate Japanese language learner could ever want to know. --Tofugu blog The best thing about this book, by far, is that the professor really knows his subject matter --Self Taught Japanese blog It is impossible to speak fluent Japanese without speaking polite Japanese, and it is difficult to speak polite Japanese without this book. --Mary Kennedy, Decatur College
