Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Readers are introduced to the many sides of Ford: engineer, doting father, pacifist, businessman, and eccentric. Black-and-white photographs and sidebars offer enough extra information to give readers a true sense of the time period, 1896-1947. The author is careful to note both the positive and negative details, thereby creating a balanced account. The coverage of Ford's business is quite revealing. Readers are shown the advantages of his assembly line to production as well as the harsh pre-union working conditions faced by employees. Students will find this volume useful for reports, and those readers with engineering and automobile interests will find it interesting.-Suzanne Crowder, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, Frankfort, KY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
