Sinopsis: PRINCE OF THE AIR is a chronicle of an around-the-world race by a Japanese in 1928 when travel by rail and sea was time consuming and sometimes unpredictable, and air travel was in its infancy. Jiji Shimpo Newspaper, the leading newspaper in Japan at the time, called out to the citizens of Japan to participate in a history-making race around the world by Japanese. Toichiro Araki responded to the challenge and was one of the two racers chosen from several hundred candidates. He had just established the first Efficiency Management Institute in Tokyo to spread the teachings of F. W. Taylor's statistical control management and Frank Gilbreth's 'Time and Motion' study he learned in America when he was a foreign student. He wanted to prove to the nation, which was still backward in their industrial development, that great things could be accomplished by efficient management of time and materials. This race offered that opportunity.This race around the world was very different from any previous races. First of all, this was the first time a non-Caucasian had undertaken such a race. The mission of the race was to promote global goodwill and to teach insular Japanese about the world outside of Japan. Also, there were many rules and restrictions, such as having to meet and get signatures of the mayors of five major cities in the world, using ordinary means of travel (no private charters), by first class, and a limit of money that they could use. He met formidable challenges every step of the way. No sooner did he overcome one obstacle than another was waiting for him. He almost had a 'showdown' with a U.S. mail plane pilot who refused to fly in the fog. When he arrived in New York City in a small mail plane, James Walker, the then mayor, called him, 'Prince of the Air.' Araki managed to waken the Lord Mayor of London, who 'never sees anyone before 9:00 a.m.' at 7:30 a.m. to meet with him. He was almost pulled off of a train at the border of Germany and Poland because he did

Biografía del autor: Toichiro Araki is often referred to as 'the Pioneer of EfficiencyManagement in Japan.'¿ Araki wasborn on January 25, 1895 in Tokyo, Japan.¿He traced his family roots to an ancient Samurai clan.¿ In 1918, while he was working for FujikuraDensen Company as a chemical engineer, he received a two-year governmentscholarship to study rubber chemistry at the University of Akron, Ohio.¿ During this period, the iconoclastic youngJapanese found a kindred spirit in Americans that became the turning point inhis life.¿ Hebecame intrigued by a new science called industrial engineering, a fieldunknown in Japan then.¿ He felt this wasthe key to America's industrial success.¿After he received his Master's degree from the University of Akron, hetraveled to the East Coast to learn more about this emerging field, whichincluded F. W. Taylor's statistical quality control management and 'Timeand Motion Studies' promoted by Frank Gilbreth.¿ Back in Japan, he advanced his own brand of efficiencymanagement, an amalgam of Gilbreth's and F. W. Taylor's systems, American freethinking and the ancient Samurai code of honor, duty and compassion. Whenhe returned in 1921 and saw how backward Japan was compared to the UnitedStates, he vowed to devote his life to help Japan become a world-classnation.¿ He firmly believed that smallbusiness was the backbone of a nation, and poured his time and energy inbuilding small businesses.¿ In thespring of 1928, using his 'efficiency' method, Araki undertook thefirst around-the-world race by a Japanese. The race was sponsored by JijiShimpo newspaper, and the whole nation celebrated his victory.¿ His book: Sanjusan Nichi Sekai Isshu (Around theWorld in 33 Days) chronicled his adventure. Hewas a humanist, libertarian, and a patriot.¿He was a maverick in a conformist society and never hesitated to speakhis mind.¿ He was generous of his timeand money to a fault.¿ He was aconnoisseur of art, opera, and music and believed in enjoying life to thefullest.¿ During his wo
