I have finished to read "American business idioms", which was written in Japanese by David A. Thayne and published by Nikkei Business Library in 2003. Title is also in Japanese, so this English title is my translation, sorry. Japanese students are learning English at least from junior high school to high school for 6 years, but teachers or school textbook doesn't teach phrases like this. The author puts business idioms at various situations into one volume. Only 200 pages pocket edition is easy to bring everywhere and turn pages from time to time. It also has some explanations of difference of culture between Japanese and American.
