This book, written by Tatsuno, a U.S. high-tech industry consultant and editor of a previous work on Japan's high-tech industry, The Technopolis Strategy (LJ 10/1/86), functions on at least three different levels: as a theoretical investigation of creativity, as a fascinating comparison of Eastern and Western cultural values, and as a basic explanation of why Japan is gradually outdistancing the U.S. in industrial technology. Tatsuno says that while Americans have been traditionally stronger in basic research and new ideas, the Japanese have shown greater creativity in recycling and refining ideas and also have made greater efforts than Americans to improve on their weaknesses. The book is filled with numerous examples of contemporary high-tech research and development in Japan, including in-depth chapters on high-definition television, computers, and semiconductors. Highly recommended.
