Granted unprecedented access to the inner workings of Toyota, the authors spent six years researching the company and performing more than 220 interviews with Toyota employees, distributors, and car dealers in order to determine what makes Toyota one of the world's best companies.
Extreme Toyota offers an inside look at the radical contradictions within the company, created by its own management, and how these help Toyota outperform its competition. By putting a premium on creativity and paradoxical thinking as a corporate resource, Toyota has become the best car manufacturer and one of the most successful companies on earth. This audiobook takes a fascinating inside look at what makes Toyota tick.

It was interesting to hear more about the culture of Toyota. The book is good, but does seem to get a bit repetitive. The author uses the same stories to make different points. I still really liked this book.
There is some good information in this book. However, this should only be a 90 minute book because it is highly redundant. So much so, I often wondered if I had accidentally hit the button to start at chapter one.
"An excellent book"
I would recommend to everyone with serious interest into the Toyota way. I found a lot of inspiration for my job and work how to improve myself and help imorove my team.
