About the Author:

Dr. Kazuo Inamori, whose management philosophy is shared in this book, was born in Kagoshima, southern Japan, in 1932. At age 27, he established Kyoto Ceramic Co., Ltd (now Kyocera Corporation) using $10,000 from a friend. Kyocera has since become a global leader in high-tech ceramic and eletronic products. In 1984, he also established DDI Corporation (now KDDI), the first long-distance and cellular telephone carrier company to challenge NTT, Japan's communications monopoly.

From Booklist:

When you're one of Japan's most successful entrepreneurs as well as one of the richest men in the world and you're considered a maverick visionary preaching land and tax reform, government decentralization, and deregulation, you don't have to rely on the vanity press to publish your quirky musings, admonitions, and inspirational nuggets. When you head the company that founded and it has become a worldwide leading long-distance and cellular telephone company with $3 billion in sales, and you argue that the U.S. should try harder to penetrate the Japanese market, publishing houses will vie with one another to put your thoughts into print, knowing there is a huge audience looking for the secret to success. Just remember, as Inamori says, "Be a humble leader, don't practice `small love,' and always wrestle in the center of the mat!" David Rouse
