On today’s show we are joined by the author of The Salaryman, Michael Howard. It’s a very humorous and entertaining book about Michael’s experiences and observations of working at a number of Japanese companies over 9 years. We talk about some of the things from the book such as, the interview process, interesting colleagues, fooling around with company expenses, trapping foreign clients when negotiating business deals, various drinks that the Japanese consume to help them deal with alcohol, the yearly health check, the dreaded barium test, and much much more!

Michael is also currently working on a manga series, based on The Salaryman book, and will be coming soon. Check the website for updates. https://www.thesalarymanbook.com/
