The dictionary tells us an odyssey is “an adventurous wandering”. However, John Dalessio had an automobile experience that was forthright. He planned and executed with precision. At the helm, he guided car dealerships to unimaginable successes. His dreams became reality and touched the lives of those around him. Ease of discourse made his employees, friends, and customers stop and say “Why didn’t I think of that?” Having Ford and General motors dealerships simultaneously, proved no burden for him anymore than Fred Astaire dancing with Ginger Rogers or Rita Hayworth. His Foresight of selecting conducive locations for dealerships bordered on ESP. He somehow knew when the time was right for gas guzzlers and when economy cars were on the horizon as the rage. Stocking his lots with appropriate inventory amazed his competitors. Driverless cars and their sellers and owners will know who to contact when future problems arise in the coming years.

An Automobile Odyssey is a fascinating history of the automobile industry decade by decade and described how the automobile changed our lives. The book also offered an interesting glimpse into the future of the industry with the pros and cons of autonomous cars. The author's autobiography was riveting and told his story of how he achieved "the american dream." - D. Fontana
