This lighthearted guide to Japanese sumo is a great introduction to the sport for westerners.

Author J.A. Sargeant, sports editor for the English-language, Asahi Evening News, realized that there were many foreigners who would enjoy Sumo more if they knew more of the essential facts about it. Utilizing his knowledge and first-hand information on the sport, he produced this sumo book to meet this need.

Written in the humorous, easy-to-read fashion with which the many readers of his sports column will be pleasantly familiar. Mr. Sargeant has also given us a picture of the excitement of the sport, as well as technical aspects that are apt to escape the uninitiated eye.
