Talking Straight by Lee Iacocca with Sonny Kleinfield
“I look around me and I see Wall Street executives being dragged away in handcuffs. I see a national deficit so high that I can’t count the zeroes. I see the government paying farmers not to plant their land while the homeless go hungry on the streets. Something’s rotten out there - and it’s not in Denmark.

“The only way to get this country back on track is to return to good old-fashioned horse sense. We’ve got to start with the basics: how we raise our kids, how we care for our sick and homeless, what it is each of us truly believes. And we’ve got to remember what America stands for, so that we can take our tarnished values and make them shine again.” - Lee Iacocca

In 1984, Lee Iacocca’s autobiography made history, breaking bestseller records throughout the world. His personal story - the rise and fall and rise again of this immigrants’ son; his old-fashioned values and straight-shooting opinions - evoked an extraordinary outpouring of response from readers everywhere.

Now, in the same outspoken voice that stirred millions, Iacocca speaks from the heart about what’s on his mind: at home, as he raises his kids and grows older; in the nation, as the deficit mounts, Wall Street wavers and the twentieth century draws to a close; and in our increasingly interdependent world.

What do we stand for today - and how do we retrieve the values our parents and grandparents gave us? Where has Washington gone wrong? How is American business going astray? When will we stop suing each other at the drop of a hat? Why is the country that feeds the world watching its farmers starve? Above all, how can we improve the quality of our lives and make “Made in America” mean something again?

Forthright, direct and candid as ever, Lee Iacocca proposes fresh answers to some very tough questions. He analyses our nation’s urgent economic dilemma and offers practical scenarios for solving it. Here, too, are Lee Iacocca’s Ten Commandments of good management - and his ten suggestions for the next President.

A lot has happened to Lee Iacocca in the last four years. And a lot has happened to us. Now Iacocca gives us straight talk about the most pressing concerns of our lives. For those who read - and reread - Iacocca: Ann Autobiography, as well as those who will meet Lee Iacocca in these pages for the first time, Talking Straight will be the most provocative and rewarding book of the year.

Sonny Kleinfield is a reporter for The New York Times and the author of six previous books.
