This enthralling book by one of the world′s leading authorities on the IT industry brings together for the first time the different elements of the frightening story of Japan′s conquest of information technology. If America and Europe continue on their present course and pursue business–as–usual policies, says Tom Forester, then by far the greater part of the IT industry will slip inexorably into the hands of the Japanese, and Japan′s economic triumph over the West will be complete.
"Tom Forester has brilliantly pieced together seemingly unrelated Japanese actions to show that their cumulative impact spells certain doom for the American IT industry. Anyone involved in the high–tech industry should read this book, as it shows the serious Japanese desire for technological and market supremacy." Michael C Sekora, President, Technology Strategic Planning, Inc.
"Silicon Samurai is a must read for anyone intersted in the economics of high technology." Clyde V Prestowitz, President, Economic STrategy Institute, Washington D. C.
