JAPANESE WISDOM FOR A FULFILLING AND MEANINGFUL LIFE

I hope to move readers from cultural appropriation to cultural appreciation.

One of my personal goals in writing this book is to return this beautiful concept back to its original cultural context and move readers, who are familiar with or use the Venn diagram, from cultural appropriation to cultural appreciation.

 NICHOLAS KEMP  //  Author

A thorough and multifaceted exploration of what ikigai means in Japan. 

I admire how extensively Nick has researched ikigai. He has left no stone unturned, scouring the literature for scholarly and lay explorations; interviewing friends, family, and researchers in Japan and part of the Japanese diaspora; and talking with experts on related topics (including Japanese calligraphy, pottery-making, and business).
