    "This is the first work I have read that sets a structure and framework for organizations to follow if they wish to revolutionize the workplace. Kobayashi has removed the mystery of how to accomplish major improvement in a business. His insight is true genius!"

    --John Sutter, VP of Manufacturing, National Rubber Company, Inc. June 2004

    "An extraordinarily powerful book...pulls together all the strands of world class manufacturing into a package which is readily understandable at all levels of an organization. By using simple drawings Kobayashi truly demonstrates that 'every picture speaks a thousand words' and in the process produces a methodology which ensures that everyone will work together for the common good. Not only does it inspire; it also shows how to achieve."

    --Peter D. Wickens, Centre for Achievement in Manuf. Mgmt, U. of Sunderland, June 2004
