The book

Carlos Ghosn has co-authored the book with Philippe Ries: “Le Temps de la Vérité, Carlos Ghosn speaks”.

This event-book, is aimed at explaining the ins and outs of this economic, judicial, politic and personal drama.

-A personal and family tragedy: celebrated in Japan for saving Nissan from bankruptcy in 1999, the man who enabled Renault to achieve the best results in its history, is transformed from one day to the next into an outcast, torn from the world and his family. And victim of a violent smear campaign orchestrated worldwide by the “Old Nissan” and the Tokyo Prosecutor’s Office.

-An industrial tragedy: the Alliance, the world’s leading car manufacturer in volume in 2017 and 2018, is beheaded, plunged into a deep crisis, with company share price sinking, at the very moment when the global automobile industry is facing an unprecedented technological revolution.

-A political-judicial thriller: this case involves political power at the highest level in Japan and France and describes a Japanese judicial system closer to that of a totalitarian regime than to that of an advanced democracy. At stake is the future of an industrial complex employing more than 450,000 people worldwide in 120 factories.

From the motives of the internal coup d’état that led to the fall of Carlos Ghosn to the question around his compensation, his management methods and his vision of the future of this major industry, all issues are addressed here. In order to understand what has already happened and can still happen.
