A must for anyone that wants to achieve.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Spirit of Kaizen to be better than the print version?

Yes and No. This is a great book regardless of how you get the information. Most important is to get this information that develops yourself, organization, and your team. Provides endless examples of team approach, how to get the best out of yourself and others, how to prepare for whatever you want to accomplish. This is a well put together book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Kaizen change therapy

Not quite what I expected, but nonetheless excellent. I was familiar with kaizen as an engineer's process improvement tool, or more accurately 'philosophy'. Maurer' background as a clinical psychologist adds a new dimension in explaining WHY kaizen might succeed in helping us to deal with resistance to change, and what we might do to overcome the obstacles. Many useful anecdotal illustrations. His delivery was calm and believable, as one might expect from a doctor.
