I've read almost all the books written on the subject and I've spent several days with the man that was the Chief of Design on the Z Car Project. This book introduces you to the main players and gives a good insight to the process involved in moving an automotive design from concept to reality. All this in a fun-to-read book that takes less than an hour. If you love the Datsun 240Z this is a "must read".Project X - Datsun Fairlady Z (Project X 240Z Challengers)
While I'm not a Datsun fan myself, I am certainly more informed about the car now. But more importantly, what I found most appealing about this book, was how the creators manage to make the reader feel the importance of what's happening.
Put it this way: To the outside observer, watching some middle managers try to make a business venture work probably sounds as fun as reading a Powerpoint presentation--but Akira Yokoyama is able to make the reader feel like they're watching something epic and monumental, conveying exactly how the business people in this tale are feeling as they work hard to make their shared dream a reality.
It was a Great Book! It had a lot of early drawings of Datsun products and really told a great story and put all the Datsun characters and history into place. It was a light reading book and can be read in one evening. It will be in my Datsun book collection forever!
