'The idea alone is good: two old men, the American management guru Peter F. Drucker and the Japanese tycoon Isao Nakauchi, enter into a dialogue. The book that emerges from this is even better......Drucker knows so much, and views the economic situation more from the outside. Nakauchi can do so much, which means of course that he is right in the thick of it. An ideal mix for all future entrepreneurs, as the founders of tomorrow must achieve both: theoretical reflection and hands-on creativity.'
Manager, October 1996
