Hans Greimel and William Sposato
This is the story of what is known as the “Ghosn Shock”, the story of Carlos Ghosn, the famous executive who rescued the Nissan company from bankruptcy turning it into a global automobile empire, and his subsequent arrest and consequences.
Carlos Ghosn, one of the world’s most famous executives, spent two decades building a colossal alliance between Nissan and Renault. But what seemed like a cutting-edge new business model hid an unstable operation.
After being arrested and imprisoned by the Japanese authorities, Ghosn staged a shocking and daring escape from Japan.
• Journalists Hans Greimel and William Sposato have followed the story closely, with access to key players, including Ghosn himself.
• The book explores the complex hypotheses surrounding who and what were truly responsible for Ghosn’s ouster and why one of the world’s top executives risked everything in his spectacular escape.
• A fascinating story that tells us about the complexity of doing global business in a world still governed by nationalist interests.

"This book is brilliantly conceived and written. Despite being based on real events, it reads like a fast-paced spy novel. The authors offer a totally unbiased narrative that will be of great value not only to business professionals, but also to all those engaged in the study of the social sciences." -BOB LUTZ, former vice president, General Motors
