About the Author:

David Magee is the author of eight books, including Turnaround: How Carlos Ghosn Rescued Nissan  and The John Deere Way: Performance that Endures.

Review:

“From its renowned production system to its unerring sense of customers' tastes, the factors that fueled Toyota's drive to the summit of the auto industry are all well recounted here.”
Newsweek

“Magee runs through lessons in leadership and strategy, weaving in colorful snippets from Toyota's 70-year history.”
Fast Company

“David Magee convincingly argues that the spirit of Toyota people, as much as anything, has determined Toyota's success.”
—BusinessWeek.com

“When it comes to Toyota’s success, Mr. Magee credits the company’s internal realities....he celebrates Toyota’s willingness to acknowledge production problems quickly, to adapt its methods to varying markets (thus defying a stereotype of management rigidity), and to ask for feedback from its workers—thereby ‘empowering’ them”
Wall Street Journal

“Magee provides an excellent view of a shining business model that encompasses not only Toyota’s highly espoused lean production system but also its leadership values and unique corporate culture.”
Booklist

“This inspirational book is essential reading for both human resource professionals and business executives”
Library Journal
