"Studded with fact, figures, and history, Trade War is a brisk, sassy examination of the US-Japan trade spats. Its crisp, pep-talk prose presents a well-stated and balanced guide to the conflict.
- The Wall Street Journal
While many books on the US-Japan conflict have surfaced, Trade War is the one I especially recommend. It is a uniquely written book, and Schlossstein has done more than anyone else in shedding new light on our mutual misunderstandings and national perspectives.
- Norio Ohga, former President, Sony Corporation
"This eminently sensible, well-written book should become a national bestseller to replace In Search of Excellence.
- The Dallas Times Herald
"Do not be misled by Steve Schlossstein's breezy style. He knows both Japan and the United States and has thought deeply about their trade problems.
- Dr. Charles Kindleberger, professor emeritus, MIT
"Unabashed success tale! It may be the best introduction to the subject of US-Japan trade yet published. Not only is it pithy, succinct, and compulsively readable, it is also impressively thorough.
- Los Angeles Times
"Trade War is a must book on a forbidden topic. It is essential reading for anyone who cares about America's competitive position in the world today.
- Dr. Amitai Etzioni, author of An Immodest Agenda
"A clear account of contrasting policies. The author has produced real theater and an exceptional writing technique.
- The New York Times
"An intelligent exposition of Japanese-American trade relations that is lively, well written, and provides some useful thoughts on future strategy.
- Adam Smith, author of The Money Game and Supermoney
