That COUGH Though!!

I just wanna give a shout out to THAT COUGH towards the end of Japan Chapter 4!! No need to edit it out, I think it gives the book character. Book is good also, short and to the point, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Well done!

It's hard to imagine a larger subject than the History of East Asia. The countries covered in this audible, China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are each giant (well, maybe not Taiwan) and have extremely rich and complex histories that you can spend a lifetime exploring.
