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

Obviously classic material

This is really well done - Ford is both at once a modern and 19th century man. Ford Motor of his day isn’t really what remains today but don’t let that cloud the material. It’s 99 years old - Titanic sank barely 10 years before this book was published. It’s lessons for business in many stages of growth. Ford has some quirks that need to be put in perspective (not the same as excused) so listen/read and listen again

It is a great book - Highly recommend it!

It is very useful book, particulary to those who want to build an organisation. Ford shows how he's built his Ford Motor Company and outlines his philosophy for mass production. He also touched on on the challenges he faced througout his work and how he overcame them. This book, also, serves as a motivational book for entrepreneurs.
