Based on his experiences as an elementary school student, Goro Yamada, who has been a manga artist for 40 years, takes on the challenge of writing a novel for the first time. This is a book that will make it impossible to be a bad person.

Books exist only for "small things". Haven't we forgotten that origin? The founder of Voyager, Inc., who has been involved in a number of groundbreaking publishing projects, including "Romancer," a web service for electronic publishing, and "Yoshio Kataoka: The Project to Digitize All His Works," looks back on his 25-year history and talks about the future of books and publishing.
