Henry Ford--pioneering automobile magnate, philanthropist, political meddler, rabid anti-Semite, and headline grabber--helped invent the twentieth century, perfecting the internal combustion engine and the assembly line, thus placing the motor car within the grasp of the common man. Here in minute detail and plain language Watts, who earlier won attention for probing the life and influence of Walt Disney, unfolds his take on the farm boy turned industrialist. Narrator John H. Mayer has an amiable personality and a well-modulated voice. He reads with comprehension at an even pace but is able only partially to compensate for the author's sometimes tedious propensity to digress and to dwell on minutiae.
