    Story
    (9)

    Here is the story of a mechanically inclined farm boy who turned the automobile from a toy for the wealthy, into a necessity for modern life.

    This biography approaches the story of Henry Ford in the context of his world. For example, roads were as much a factor for cars, as the car was for roads. The farmer would not risk his livelihood on a Ford internal combustion tractor until the engine proved itself in his Sunday car.

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    - Very awkward narrator (may be due to the old age of the recording).
    - Very unusual in sentence and paragraph structure.
    - Runs at about 50:50 random world history at the time to actual information about Ford
    - Information about Ford is not well organized, very loose and starts late in his life
    - It skips around in years

    This is the first time I have wanted to return an audible book. Please, please avoid this title.
