The Koreans

The Koreans by Michael Breen is the book about Korea... or so most people would say. He explains the history of the peninsula, the spirit of the people, the food, and ... well, pretty much everything - or at least he tries to.

Honestly, I have read this book a few times now and each time I enjoy it. Each time I am also left thinking there should be more. To accomplish his task Breen uses huge brushes when painting his pictures and I guess more than once I would have prefered a finer pen.

If you want to start learning baout Korean and Koreans, this is a great place to start. If you already know a lot, this book probably won't teach you much.
