This is no conventional biography of Henry Ford – the greatest and most maverick exponent of free enterprise. Rather, it’s a fascinating study of Ford’s philosophy of business and the strange personal idiosyncrasies of the man himself. Garrett sees Henry Ford for the genius that he was, as an entrepreneur who saw the possibilities and seized on them and of the obstacles Ford faced and overcame. He chronicles Ford’s battles with the government and the unions and demonstrates that Ford could move with the times and stay innovative. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
