About this Item

"Reiko McKendry was a colleague at Chrusler at a difficult time when we struggled to compete with, yet learn from, the Japanese automakers. From a relatively low level in the Chrysler hierarchy, she taught us how the Japanese management techniques differed from ours. She is widely creditied for her contributions to the spectacular successes of the Chrysler organization in the 1990's. Her, story from an upbringing in war-torn Japan, to a potentially hostile environment in Detroit, has something of interest to all readers." {Steve Miller}. This book has 213 pages and is illustrated. Bookseller Inventory # 061788

About this title


Born in post-World-War-II Japan, Reiko grew up in a family environment where her father was abusive toward her mother. Around the age of 15, to escape from the misery of constant violence, Reiko knew that her choice had to be either death or life in freedom. This is a remarkable story of her journey to freedom and independence in the country of her childhood dreams, the United States of America. This book gives a glimpse into the mind of an immigrant who is determined to succeed in life in the land of the free.


"Precise explanations of cultural differences...are enlightening and engaging. Most effective, however, is the author's ability to speak both affectionately and critically--though never negatively--about her native country. [An] inspiring memoir and a thank-you note to the author's adopted homeland."  Kirkus Reviews
