The book was as good as I hoped. The delivery was (unlike more recently) smooth and flawless.

This tells the story of Henry Ford's ultimately unsuccessful attempt to manufacture rubber for the tires of his cars in the Amazon basin in Brazil. Grandin paints a revealing picture of Ford himself, the times he lived in, and the historical figures he interacted with.
