If there is one business book to pass, unless you have never been in business world, this is it. In the first part, the author cannot outdo himself praising the company. Most of the book offers advice that is simple and basic, such as when learning something new go slow first. To add air of sophistication, the author uses Japanese terms without any real justification, and repeats them over and over. You will have to translate them every time in your mind to figure out what he is saying. Instead of using workshop, as in check reality at the manufacturing floor, he uses the word gamba or something like that. This usage detracts from the points being made and is annoying. This book would be most useful for new hires at the company, to give them a feel of the culture. For insights and ideas you can use elsewhere, look elsewhere for another source or book.
These authors could have done some evaluation and critical analysis, instead of repeating corporate corn.
It does offer insight into the company.
Too bad that there are so many more business books than there should be.
