    Inspiring,Definitely worth reading! Over 40 years, I've given many copies away to people I wanted to offer encouragement.

    In this candid autobiograpy, we follow Robert G. LeTourneau as he rose from manual labor in a Duluth foundry to become a giant in the Construction Equipment industry. His solid Christian character, hard work and creative imagination led to the development of equipment that enabled men to become much more productive (and therefore, to earn higher wages). Examples are the electric self-propelled wheel and the portable island for off-shore oil drilling.
    As part of his committed service to his Lord, Mr. LeTourneau made many evangelistic talks, gave much to churches to encourage physical development (you'll find many churches with LeTourneau gymnasiums), and encouraged Christian education (founding LeTourneau College. He was humble, saying that he was "only a mechanic whom God has blessed."

    Wonderful book

    about a Christian man succeeding and staying true to his values. This book was recommended by our pastor. Even my nonreading husband and 15 yos enjoyed reading it. That says a lot about this book in itself!

    Modern day hero

    R. G. LeTourneau was a man who never gave up. This book will inspire and motivate as well if not better than any other motivational book one could ever find and read. This man was honest, fair and rewarded hard work. An innovator to whom credit is deserved for most of the heavy earth moving equipment in use today. He learned from his mistakes and kept going.

    Pioneer heavy equiptment development

    I found this to be an excellant book being both a Christian and an earth mover myself. LaTourneau trully did not accept no as a way of building equiptment it seems and I am movtivated.
