Review: My Life And Work (The Autobiography Of Henry Ford)

User Review  - John - Goodreads

Henry Ford was a brilliant business man and truly understood how free markets should work. This book should be required reading for all business students. I would give the book five stars but there are about two pages that include some anti-semitism that truly tarnish the book. Read full review
