This biography approaches the story of Henry Ford in the context of his world. For example, existing roads were as much a factor on cars, as the car was on the advance of roads. The farmer would not risk his livelihood on a Ford internal combustion tractor, until the engine proved itself in his Sunday car. And the public held suspicion of mass production, until Ford showed it could provide value, quality, and good wages.
