Very boring and boring and monotonous.

Mr Ford repeats himself over and over in each chapter, to the point that he is more a preacher than a story teller.

Timeless Principles!

An inspiring collection of principles that are as true today as the day they were written. I believe all business leaders and aspiring leaders would benefit from the clear and sound fundamentals presented by this truly great business man.

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

Ford; self righteous egomaniac narcissistic person

Very much a struggle to finish... but I Did! Worth a read just for historical content only. Definitely a different era. He hits on every subject that would be very politically incorrect today. Saying that, he was a genius (in his mind and others) on pretty forward thinking considering this was the early part of the 1900's!

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.

Emotionally Wrenching & Highly Inspirationals

Loved every minute of this book, The Beauty of Fords Personality, his true devotion to social impact, his high intellect on business & economics. This mans story exceeded all my expectations and above all it feels like he's reading his own story to us not the narrator which is brilliant

Ahead of his time

Incredible book. He was truly ahead of his time and I’m surprised how so many of things that he foresaw in his day came true or are still relevant. A must read!
