Surprising. The man is incapable of fluff.

I wasn't expecting a philosophy book. No preamble. No foreplay. No lube. No time for screwing around. Should be called "My Work and Work."

buy the paper book instead

it's an interesting historical book. word explains his ideas about how factories should work and how to correctly use labor and money to build a business. If it was not for the humanity of the workers at his ideas would probably work well. I was told that he is a racist and was not offended in this book.

The narrator is impossible to listen to. I think he's trying to do some kind of character actor but he's essentially yelling at the listener and its very wearing after a time

A must read for all businessmen and engineers

Written 100 years ago, this book is still relevant today. Henry Ford seems hard headed and tough, but his values of work and dedication endure till this day. He didn’t take short cuts.

Ford was a wise man. I enjoy thinking and finding wisdom. I got a lot of logic and philosophy out of this read.

This is is an amazing book. It’s subject is a man of stunning contrasts

Ford is full of surprises. He gave one year’s customers a 10% refund because his profits exceeded expectations, paid comparatively high cwages but hated union organizers, and spoke continuously about service to the community but was hateful toward Jews. In other words, interesting and troubling in equal portions.
