  • Through access to highlevel Honda executives, Rothfeder dives into a culture that sidesteps traditional hierarchy, proving that no organization is too large to stop thinking like a start-up.

  • Great investors profit by running against the crowd; in this respect Rothfeder's superb book is the story of a great corporate contrarian. It explains how Honda's idiosyncratic approach has enabled it to prosper.

  • In an entertaining book, Rothfeder details how Honda has navigated globalization with a strategy other multinationals should follow.
