Revue de presse

...an entertaining cross-cultural memoir. --Publishers Weekly

"The Accidental Office Lady, is an informative... account of what it was like to be the first American woman ever employed at Honda Motor Co. headquarters. --BusinessWeek.com

... a revealing portrait of the corporate culture that reflects, and defines, Japan. --New York Times On The Web

Présentation de l'éditeur

A young woman with a new degree in Japanese studies and plenty of youthful idealism and can-do spirit accepts a job as the first American trainee at Honda's headquarters in Tokyo. Her image of Japanese corporate life is dramatically challenged on her first day at work when she is issued a blue polyester uniform;a uniform worn only by women! From menial beginnings serving tea to executives and cleaning the boss's desk, to a stint in public relations, to developing training classes for Japanese associates going to America, Laura Kriska recounts her struggle to adapt to;and ultimately thrive in;the culture of a traditional Japanese company. Shortly before her departure, she travels full circle by introducing a successful campaign to make women's uniforms optional. Now with a new foreword by the author, The Accidental Office Lady is a vivid and valuable firsthand account not only of corporate Japan and the gender inequality that persists within it, but of an outsider's successful attempt to work within cultural boundaries to affect organizational change.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Engaging and unbiased! 11 juin 2014
Par Celena O'Brien - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I simply could not put this book down! Anyone interested in the inner-workings of Japan and their psychological, social, and cultural differences compared to America should read it. Current pop-culture and online blogs can only scratch the surface of Japan and its complex yet wonderful culture. Not only is the book informative, it is a flag for women's rights and equality and illustrates how one woman was able to bring change to a conservative country.

5 stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Insider's look.... 27 août 2009
Par Michael Valdivielso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Laura Kriska gives us an insider's look at corporate Japan, with the sexism, the corporate culture, the problems in dealing with Non-Japanese workers and business partners. There is not much to tell - she did a very good job, with lots of humor and wit, as well as insight, to describe her two years working for Honda Motor Company. From uniforms, to working along side Office Ladies and Factory Workers, to helping the Japanese deal with problems that, frankly, they didn't want to deal with.
I wish she had a few more books out there - it was hard to put this one down!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 not a bad read, once you get past the editing errors 10 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Given Ms. Kriska's lifelong exposure to Japanese culture, I was surprised at her irritation by many aspects of that very culture. As a gaijin female, she expected to change things at Honda overnight?
The book itself is entertaining once you get past the snotty subtext and the errors in reference to American culture (she claims to have been a fan of the "Little Hosue on the Prairie" series as a child, yet the author's name is misspelled in this book).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable, but there might be a discrepancy ... 14 mai 2001
Par Marty McFly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed this book, and found it to be an interesting, useful, and above all, blessedly unsentimental (no sakura or lyrical descriptions of mountains, trees, or destruction thereof) book. However, since Kriska mentions that she joined up with Honda for a career, not a job, I wonder why her bio on the back cover describes her as a writer living in NYC ....

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A recommended read for those who haven't been to Japan. 14 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is definitely a worthwhile read for those who have never visited Japan or even for those who have spent a short time there and were less than enthralled with the experience. It offers a very accurate view from a typical American experience whether working in the Japanese business world, in the English teaching profession, or in another field generally made up of foreigners.
I was disappointed that there was not much mention of the positive aspects of Japanese business culture. Unfortunately, most foreigners who visit Japan also make this same ommision when recounting their experiences.
Something that perplexed me from the outset of the book was the great lack of knowledge and understanding of modern Japan that the author exhibited as she made her way through the events of her story. It was my understanding that she had completed a Japanese Studies program which included study abroad at a very prestigious Japanese university before beginning as a trainee at the Honda headquarters.
