Summary
"From an acclaimed popular historian comes a fresh, meticulous, and entertaining account of Henry Ford and his invention of the Model-T--the machine that defined the dawning age in America. Every century or so, our republic has been changed by a new technology: 170 years ago it was the railroad; today it's the microprocessor. But in the early twentieth century it was the gasoline-combustion engine, built by a young, unknown, industrious man named Henry Ford. Born into a steam-powered world, the young farm boy saw the advantages of internal combustion; using his innate mechanical abilities, hard work, and imagination he transformed our nation's industry and went on to become an American icon. In many ways, his story is well known; in just as many other ways, it is not. Richard Snow weaves together a fascinating narrative of Ford's rise to fame--as well as his creative personality and spirit--through his greatest invention, the Model T. The car transformed our nation in a decade, and made Ford a national hero. But then Ford soured, and the benevolent side of his character went into an ever-deepening eclipse, even as the cultural change he initiated remade America. Snow, who "writes with verve and a keen eye" (The New York Times Book Review) has written a highly pleasurable read, and shows us the remarkable man who invented the modern age"--
