J. Ignacio Lopez's autobiography, Tu puedes - Memorias de un trabajador, (You Can - Memories of a Worker) was published in Spain by LID Editorial Empresarial in Madrid.
The book is a mixture of Lopez's memories of infancy and youth, his philosophy of individual creativity, and his recent history as a dramatic, charismatic leader who saved billions of dollars for General Motors and Volkswagen.
The book is in its second printing in Spain, with 25,000 copies printed. It ranked No. 5 last week on the Spanish best-seller list. Cover price is the equivalent of $17.
President Marcelino Elosua said negotiations are proceeding for an English language version of the book, which would be published in September. It would be a hardcover, more academic version, he said, and priced higher. A version in Portuguese also is likely, aimed at the Brazilian market.
