Overview

Iacocca: An Autobiography made publishing history, breaking bestseller records throughout the world. Now the nation's most outspoken corporate giant and American success story retums with a provocative new book, as forthright and candid as ever. Talking Strait is for the millions who read-and reread-Iacocca, as well as those who will meet Lee Iacocca in these pages for the first time. Here is Iacocca at his best-talking straight and hard about the most pressing concerns of our lives. . .

"Talking Straight offers the same breezy, no-nonsense style that made Iacocca so appealing even to non-business readers. . .This time he's offering an even wider range of observations—on everything from raising kids and growing older to what's wrong with politics, trade, Wall Street, the Reagan administration, and the American psyche. . .He also offers eight commandments of management. . . .The point of this book, he writes, is that fundamental public issues must be addressed-and soon."—Business Week.

"He believes in the value of getting mad—at deficits, trade policies, the news media—and he believes in speaking out."—The New York Times Book Review.

"Talking straight presents the Chrysler president's message in tough-guy language laced with humor. . .But it is, nonetheless, a serious book. Iacocca is worried about this countries future."—The Pittsburgh Press.

"Iacocca's head-on confrontation of issues and straight talk of the kind in this book would be a refreshing change in Washington."—San Francisco Chronicle

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Iacocca ( LJ 1/85), the author focused primarily on what goes on in the boardrooms of Ford and Chrysler. In this sequel, America's best known respected CEO turns to the nation's problems. Along the way he outlines his theory of management, including the eight ``commandments'' he has developed over a 40-year career. He addresses such public policy problems as corporate takeovers, the trade deficit, the plight of farmers, education, and the declining quality of American products. More personally, he talks about raising his two daughters, coping with his wife's death, his recent divorce, growing old, and what he would do if he were president, but making it clear the office holds no allure for him. Vintage Iacocca; highly recommended. BOMC selection. Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.

    First Iacocca book read

    I am a high school student and I picked this book to read for my Econ class. I've never been one to be interested in books like these, but I thought it would be a good idea for class. Going into the book I had no idea about who Lee was. Now after reading the book, I can tell you a lot about him. In this book he covers just about every topic that involves the government. Some of the things people know about and some of the things I had no idea even happened. He is a very well educated man, I believe. When I started to read the book I didn't think that I would be able to follow along with what Lee was trying to say, but he wrote it in a very easy to understand way. I would consider telling other people my age to read this book, because it really opens your eyes to what is actually going on in our government.
