Henry Ford's impact on industry, business, and society continues to drive us to reach for seemingly impossible goals. He turned an automobile into an industry, transformed the world of farming with a tractor, and launched the airplane into a new era of mass production. Ford didn't just revolutionize transportation, he completely transformed the way we work, the way we create, and the way we live. He achieved the impossible equation of cutting the cost of his product in half yet improving its quality and reliability and even doubling the wages and standard of living for his people.
Ford also invested in the future by equipping people who had no perceivable future. That included educating and training orphans and at-risk youth at The Henry Ford School for Boys. This new version of Today and Tomorrow features an interview with 88-year-old Phil Morgan who was one of those boys, and one of the few people still alive who actually knew Henry Ford.
Today and Tomorrow is like Ford's assembly line, churning out great achievers and forming success after success for nearly a century. It's a timeless reminder that the work ethic and inspiration that still bring us success today can be multiplied and imprinted on the moldable steel of our innovators of tomorrow.
Now you can finally enjoy this newly annotated version of the vintage 1926 Henry Ford classic adapted for today's digital devices. Introduced by author, businessman, and internationally recognized expert on lean manufacturing, Paul A. Akers, Today and Tomorrow by Henry Ford is timeless wisdom in a modern digital age.
Available in print and digitally as well.

Henry Ford's words hold so much truth.
Such great wisdom. This man was truly head of this times. It's sad to see that we haven't made much progress in the way we think or act. If anything, I felt like we were behind the times. So much could be different in society if people only could change the way of thinking.
Henry Ford for president!
If you are into lean, he's the originator. These are the concepts that built the machine that changed the world.
