Just finished reading.
Ben, you should be proud of your work - this is a really great book.
So many such books are poorly written, with zero editing and boring or file photos and questionable 'facts'. This is the absolute opposite.
I've posted the below on Amazon too (5*):
This book is a great explanation of the key models. It tells the story of each nameplate's evolution in the context of Japan's developing car market, so you understand not just the tech specs of a car, but how it was positioned relative to siblings and rivals in the JDM market at the time, and its strengths and weaknesses. It's the ability to put things in context and tell the whole story that is really valuable.
Ben's enthusiasm shines through in that he really manages to explain why cars like the 2000GT and 240Z were so significant, conveying the excitement and optimism of Japan's boom decades, when nothing seemed impossible.
The photos are well-chosen to back up the descriptions of each model's styling, and really seem to 'pop' off the page. Finally, unlike many books covering this area, the text is really well-written and very readable, as well as authoritative and fact-packed.
If you like JNC, you'll love the book.
