4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting view of a complex man, 9 Nov 2013
This review is from: Henry Ford (Lives and Legacies Series) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was not my first biography of Henry Ford. The book is clearly well researched with detail I had not seen before. Mr Ford was a particular hero of mine from a young age and this book struck a discord with my view of him as a man, not necessarily a bad thing, but uncomfortable never the less. The points made by Vincent Curcio that upset my view were all around the failures Ford experienced latter in his life, things I had not read or known of before and in a way things I almost wish I did not know now. For me Mr Ford was always a man of decision and vision, to see him in the more flawed state portrayed in some stories with in the book left me a bit sad for the later years of Fords life.

Don't get me wrong, this is a good book and one well worth reading, you just need to be prepared to have your image of Henry Ford challenged. One last point, I have discussed this book more than any other I read this year which is a good indication of how it affected me.
