Henry Ford introduced assembly line manufacturing to the world. His little booklet on inventory management - on what is today known as Just-in-Time management - is the bible that has made Japanese car manufacturers the most efficient in the world.
Henry Ford knew the consumer better than most. He applied his theories of car manufacture to develop excellent production systems that gave customers the best value for their money. He constantly thought about making life easier for common people. The tractor was an outcome of this preoccupation with labor reduction and increasing human efficiency. He respected experience and expertise more than academic qualifications. He created extraordinary performers from simple workers by giving them the best training and opportunities possible. He was a dictator at the workplace - but a benign, caring dictator.
Henry Ford reached the very pinnacle of his field in a lifetime of enterprise and action. The name of Ford was synonymous with cars for a long time in America. This audiobook presents a fascinating account of the life and times of this extraordinary individual.

This title is not in English, I wish they would have made that clear before I bought, unfortuatnely I did not check the comments before I bought it, they should really make it more clear when you download it.
I read all the text about the book but missed the text about the Tamil Language. All the books I bought were in English to I did not notice. Can have my credit back, can I give this book back?
If it was in English
If the book is not in English, it should be clearly stated next to the title.
