About This Book

This is a new translation of selected observations of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536-1598) whose ideas and meteoric career are well known throughout Japan. Born in the Age of Warring Clans, Hideyoshi, though of peasant birth and poor physique and nicknamed ''Monkey', rose to become Imperial Regent and head of vast armies. Some of his memoirs and accounts of the principles, which led to his extraordinary successes, are here translated. Hideyoshi's organisational methods are seen to remain indeed valid for today's leaders and corporate managers.
