From the Publisher:
Presenting a wealth of new material, including interviews with key players past and present, Bob Johnstone introduces us to a new and very different kind of Japanese worker--a dynamic, iconoclastic, risk-taking entrepreneur.|Incorporating American inventions such as microchip cameras, liquid crystal displays, and sound chips, Japanese companies created products that are now ubiquitous facets of the modern world: digital calculators and watches, synthesizers, camcorders, and compact disc players. Without these creative men and women, Seiko, Canon, Casio, Sharp, and Yamaha could not have turned obscure American inventions into profitable, useful gadgets for the consumer.
