In this entertaining and detailed biography, the author focuses on the public and private lives of manufacturer Henry Ford, his son Edsel and his grandson Henry II. Lacey explains how this family-run business empire transformed our way of life. This excellent work includes Ford's early failures, Henry Ford’s revolutionary standards and the triumph of the Model T, Edsel's struggle with his father, and Henry Ford II's rebuilding after World War II. Thoroughly researched and filled with anecdotes, Ford: The Men and the Machine provides a good insight into the Ford Motor Company and the Ford family.
