"We have few work organization studies with such thick description over a two-decade period . . . The book is a cautionary tale about the death and hopeful rebirth of manufacturing in the Untied States and provides important social commentary on the American Dream at the beginning of a new millennium." - Anthropology of Work Review

"An approach, tools, and stories that helped us build a strong, productive culture." - Randy Thayer, Lansing Regional Plant Manager, Lansing Delta Township and Lansing Grand River

"Perceptive, instructive, and critically important! The authors' incisive analysis, combined with real-world illustrations and an engaging writing style, make this book stand out from all others." - S. Tamer Cavusgil, Fuller E. Callaway Professorial Chair, Robinson College of Business, Georgia State University and Director of the Institute of International Business
