This is less a book about how to work for a Japanese boss than it is a book about the business culture of Japan…twenty-two years ago. This book made sense for the suburban Detroit-area public library in which it was found, since Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Suzuki, Subaru, and Yamaha are all Japanese auto companies that do (did?) business around here. Many of those companies still do business around Detroit. Is that a reason to keep it? NO! It’s a reason to weed it! A lot of people around here work for Japanese companies and/or take business trips to Japan. They have every reason to want to know respectful Japanese business practices. Let’s not steer them wrong. I especially loved the chapter on sex (of course), and have included several pages below.
