Dear Mr Kan,



I'm sending you my copy of Quakebook, because I want you to know that the world supports your efforts on behalf of the survivors of the earthquake. As Japan faces its biggest calamity since 1945, now is the time that this country needs its leaders to lead, not to quit.

This book was written a week after the earthquake in a spirit of cooperation by people around the world. It's an example of what we can do working together under pressure.

I urge you to find the strength to fight the only true enemies Japan has - hopelessness, doubt and fear.

Lead, and the world will follow.

All the very best,




Our Man in Abiko
Quakebook Editor

"...this country needs its leaders to lead, not to quit."

Sweet! Slamming both Kan and his opponents in a single sentence.
