Meet the Author

Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947) was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with "Fordism": mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. His intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put dealerships throughout most of North America and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation but arranged for his family to control the company permanently.

Great explanation of Ford's views of business, the story of how he got started in the industry, in his own words. Worth reading.

I am currently a sophomore in high school, and was assigned a research project on Henry Ford. This book was very informative and helpful. It provided me with almost all of the information I needed to  complete my assignment. In majority of the book, Henry Ford writes about how he started the Ford Motor Company, his ideas for the company, and about the cars and money he made. Even though I truly enjoyed reading this autobiography, I would have found it more interesting if Ford would have written more about his personal life. Ford doesn’t include a lot of information about his life growing up, or his family ancestry. I thought this book was very informative about his company but would have found it more interesting to read more about his personal background more. I learned so much about Henry Ford, his company, and Ford's impact on our world today. Overall I thought this book was very interesting and helpful.
