Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Driven: A Photobiography of Henry Ford is a riveting profile of the man whose invention revolutionized American life: the industrial visionary who changed the automobile from rich mans toy into affordable necessity. Don Mitchell weaves archival images from the Benson Ford Research Center with quotes from Fords writings, speeches, and interviews to create a lively, comprehensive profile of this intriguing individual.

Fiercely independent, and a man of complex contradictions, Henry Ford is revealed above all as a man driven to achieve his dream of building "a motor car for the great multitude," accessible to all. Driven includes a time line, resource list, and index.
