If ever an author captured the essence of a man and an entire era, it is Vincent Curcio! Chrysler is alive in every page, the details utterly astounding and so detailed as to bring life to the main rivals, Alfred P Sloan, Henry Ford and William Crapo Durant, all of whom make their presence known by the sheer dominance of language and persuasion of Curcio; the foibles of Chrysler, like his dalliance with La Grande Horizontal "Peggy" add the human touch that literally melds the entire theme into the most readable and educational book I have ever read; from the creation of his dream team who created the Chrysler engine (Breer, Skelton and Zeder) until the introduction of his famous Plymouth car which made him a many times over millionaire, I couldn't part with this book until I had devoured every page, reread chapters and reviewed the events leading up to the burial in Terrytown, New York of Della Chrysler; one can almost feel the grief experienced by Chrysler as he pondered the lake beyond the grounds of his Forker House, wheel chair bound and immobilized, a giant literally dying before the eyes of the reader as the fading memory of Della consumed the end of his life. What an extraordinary author.Chrysler by design, eclypses all the mechanical marvels of that astounding era. Virrtually incomparable. Thank you!
