Ein unbedingt empfehlenswertes Buch. Es beschreibt wie es bei GM damals zuging (und sich scheinbar kaum verändert hat). Geld zählt für manche Menschen scheinbar mehr als die Sicherheit der Kunden und der Umweltschutz. Witziger Weise hat Delorean bei seinem späteren Unternehmen DMC ein paar der von ihm angeprangerten Fehler selbst begangen.

Das Buch ist gut, leicht und verständlich geschrieben ... schade, dass es nur noch gebraucht erhältlich war, wird man wahrscheinlich bald garnicht mehr bekommen.

Dinosaur organizations: past and present. Look carefully inside. 9. Mai 2007
Von J. Gresham - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a favorite book because of the clear description of the life and emotions of an innovative project leader working inside one of the world's most bureaucratic organizations. Once seen as the ultimate in career security and lifelong comfort, General Motors became a constraining and anti-innovative weight around the passions of Mr. DeLorean. And, while once he was seen as a bright and promising superstar by the corporation, he was later considered irresponsible and a danger to corporate stability. His journey story, as told here, will give serious insights into corporate life that workers, managers, and leaders in many organizations would do well to study. Favorite quotes: "I got the empty feeling that "what I am doing here may be nothing more than perpetuating a gigantic fraud," a fraud on the American consumer by promising him something new but giving him only the surface alterations....I always had he vague suspicion that the annual model change may be good for the auto business in the short term but that it wasn't good for the economy and the country. Couldn't the money we spent on annual, superficial styling changes be better spent in reducing prices or in improving service and reliability? Or seeking solutions to the sociological problems with which our products were creating in areas of pollution, energy consumption, safety, and congestion?" "A fault that GM has had for a long time is its feeling that, since it sells more cars and trucks than anyone else in the world and makes far more money than any other automotive company, the GM way is the only way. At Chevrolet this corporate thinking translated into the theory that since Chevrolet is the number one nameplate in the American automobile industry it is unwise to tamper with its proven formula for success....This malady is common in some businesses. It also is common in professional sports where management with a team that is old but still winning is often reluctant to bring in younger talent. The result is, of course, that one day the winning record stops because the players are to old to compete effectively."

And, a word to organizations seeking to reduce expense instead of changing the world, "A man trained and skilled only in financial control, who has no direct operational experience, simply lacks the understanding necessary to run the business."

Study the decline of the dinosaur, General Motors, and you can predict what many of today's organizations will experience in the near future.

From Jon, the Civilsociety at Seedwiki guy.

Must read for anyone interested in the domestic auto industry 20. Juni 2009
Von J. Cherry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
After cooperating with the author to write an honest account of his time at GM, John DeLorean tried to supress this book, perhaps because he feared it would impact his attempt to start his own company. The book is incendiary, frank and candid. It lays bare the suffocating bean counter culture that's all but killed the greatest manufacturing company the world had ever seen. But that's what happens when you ruthlessly subtract content and compromise quality in the name of next quarter's profits.
Japanese car companies are generally run by engineers. Since the 1950s U.S. car companies have been helmed by MBAs. The industry's current situation has proved Mr. DeLorean correct in his judgements.
I couldn't put this book down.

poor writing, excellent topic 13. Mai 2004
Von "scarebird" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book had as much rythym as a train switchyard run by an epileptic. John DeLorean is cast as the ignored messiah, one who's reputation for rocking the boat is only countered by the results he achieved. Simple technical errors abound, leading one to wonder what other facts where not true. What is true is the basic premise: GM had the world by the ass, and thru arrogance and sheer inertia is suffocating under it's own weight. It is grim to read this, written in the mid 70's realising that half-wit Roger Smith was just around the corner...

John DeLorean's legacy... 9. Dezember 2010
Von Imperator - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'll make this short.

If you are a gearhead and/or automotive history buff like I am, get this book.

This book offers an inside glimpse of GM during the 1950s through 1970s as seen through the lens of the young and talented engineer/executive John Z. DeLorean. A candid view of the industry, as well as the incompetence of the red tape on the "Fourteenth Floor" that DeLorean predicted, rightly, would lead to the loss of profit, market share, and ultimately bankruptcy of GM.

This book is also not a dry read, it is filled with a lot of heart, and is the best "inside look" account of the rise and fall of the American auto industry that I have read. In short, get it!

John had a good heart 12. September 2010
Von Tec80 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is an awesome inside look at John De Lorean's rapid trip up the ladder at General Motors. It is of course highly self-congratulatory, but the fact that he is dead tempers any offense you might take at this. Many of the ideas he presents are very relevant even today, and one wonders if the "cult of power" at the top of GM still exists...I think it does, to their great peril. The book really allows the reader to feel as if he or she is JDL, working to make things better. Very highly recommended.

The book was in almost perfect condition, and I am grateful to the seller for offering it at such a reasonable price.
