I really liked this book and thought it was well researched and written. This man had more than a very interesting life, but also a very sound perspective personna, but also some very different views. He was really a rock star in his own right and this intricate perspective into his life is deep with facts I had been unaware of. This man carried great weight and power in his day and his own right and money and his successes were a large reason behind his pow to others,er. I found Henry Ford to be cast as a very out going business man, and a reserved, quiet, and unable to show his emotions to those whim mattered. At the end of the day I am sure he wouldn't trade much in his life, but if i were he, I know iI would have. A fascinating read and a very interesting character whom does give back, even today, whike the empire he built lives on and stays family run........

Henry Ford did not invent the automobile, but he invented something bigger - twentieth century America. It is no exaggeration to say that without Ford¿s system of production, without his understanding of the mass market, without his Model T, that century would have been a very different phenomenon. Ford epitomized the contradictions, complexities and confusion of that America. Self-taught and utterly confident in what he knew, he despised what he did not know. A radical who created an industrial cornucopia for workers by introducing the five-dollar daily wage, he was an industrial tyrant who hired organized criminal gangs to intimidate labor union organizers. We strongly recommend this thorough biography. Author Steven Watts offers a new way of looking at the facts, and at Ford - and does so with engaging style.
