Mine shipped yesterday. I usually like Tom Mes books even if I don't always agree with him. Looking forward to this one.

It's very well done. Very informative, with what seems like a good understanding of Japanese history and culture and how it relates to some of the movies and their relationship with them... and some great pictures, some of which I don't believe I've ever seen, including a young Meiko posing in a ligerie ad from the mid-60's.
It's smaller in size not much bigger than a blu-ray case, and really could probably be read in an afternoon. BUT....glad to have it.
