Nobelist Yoshino's Books Flooded with Orders in Japan

Nobelist Yoshino's Books Flooded with Orders in Japan

   Tokyo, Oct. 10 (Jiji Press)--Orders are pouring in for books written by Japanese researcher Akira Yoshino, after he was named one of the three laureates of this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
   "We're receiving never-ending inquiries" for his books, an official of a publisher said.
   Bookstores are scrambling to respond to the Nobel prize for Yoshino, including displaying signs congratulating him and placing his books, stocks of which are low, where customers can see them.
   The books "are extremely well received," an official at CMC Publishing Co., a Tokyo-based publisher for technical books on industrial technology, said. The company has received a flurry of orders for Yoshino's books from bookstores.
   CMC Publishing has decided to quickly reprint books written for the public, which include behind-the-scenes stories on developing lithium-ion batteries, by Yoshino, 71, honorary fellow of Japanese chemical maker Asahi Kasei Corp. <3407>.
