I’ve mentioned this book before, coming out Nov 1, it’s called How Toyota Became #1: Leadership Lessons from the World’s Greatest Car Company.
I had the exciting chance to have dinner tonight with the author, David Magee. I have, in my possession, four autographed copies of the book, courtesy of David. One is claimed by a Lean Blog reader who volunteered to do an early review (and I’m keeping one for myself so I can review it). I still need to think of a contest or a way to give away the other two books. Maybe a copy goes to someone who comes up with a reader contest idea!
It’s ironic and probably somewhat insignificant, in the big picture, that I got these copies on the day when headlines said “GM regains #1 position over Toyota” (link to a CNN article). That’s probably a short-term blip rather than a wholesale shift in the industry, don’t you think?
Here are David’s previous books(also available through amazon.com). Ignore the one on orthopedics, different author!
