Have You Ever Wondered What One Million Looks Like? In simple charts of individual 'lozenge shapes', one after the other, this book will show you just how big one million actually is. Indeed, in its very heft and bulk, this volume also conveys this information. But my aim is higher still. Though the title highlights 1,000,000, this work also details all the other numbers it contains. Thus, you can also see what the number 238,855 looks like, or 666 or even 7. This book is also a 'life list' having spaces for you to write in your thoughts about these or other numbers. You could, perhaps, note in the fill-in line for 238,855 that this is the average distance in miles from the Earth to the Moon, or cast aspersions on 'evil old' 666, or just give some love to Lucky Number 7. A Special Section gives a close-up to the numbers of daily living. There are also additional charts for numbers bigger than the millions and others smaller than the number 1. One million may not be the biggest of the big numbers, but it is their gateway! This book is where you start. So, welcome to The Visible One Million. Get into a personal relationship with the numbers around you and the stories they tell.

A haunting portrait of a fascinating age-Japan between the Meiji Era and the end of World War II In Meiji-era Japan, where the standard of beauty is the graceful geisha and the greatest joy a woman can hope for is to produce healthy heirs for her husband, an idealistic Japanese politician named Taku takes Emi as his child bride. Emi, a gifted koto player, cherishes Taku's doting love. But the couple can't conceive, and Taku's work takes him away more and more often. When she finally gives birth to a healthy son, Emi dares hope that the preternaturally intelligent Jun will help mend the rift in her marriage. That is, until she meets Hana, an extraordinarily beautiful and wicked geisha, and discovers a betrayal so devastating it would take the aid of eight million gods and demons-the number of deities in the Japanese pantheon-to overcome.
