Japanese PM's wife criticizes in new book

Tokyo -- A book by the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan includes not only details of her life, but also some sharp criticisms of her husband.

Nobuko Kan's book, "Just what will change in Japan after you become prime minister, dear," published by Gentosha, aims barbs at her husband's performance as prime minister, including an admission that "even a family member couldn't have given his general policy speech a passing grade," the Mainichi Shimbun reported Friday.

"Actually, he is more suited to being party secretary-general or head of the policy research committee than being the leader of the party," Kan wrote.
