I read the book and saw the segment on 60 Minutes I found it a pretty good read. One thing the book cleared up for me was what I've heard interviewers in the U.S. ask Adelstein with a certain amount of astonishment: the idea that reporters "bribe" cops and their families with gifts. Technically, I suppose they are bribes, but within the Japanese culture (as I understand it, anyway) the practice seems reasonable and not entirely inappropriate.
