Iacocca: Lee Iacocca Talks about Iacocca The Man, The Legend, and His History-Making Bestseller

He's an American legend, a straight-shooting businessman who brought Chrysler back from the brink and in the process became a media celebrity, newsmaker, and a man many had urged to run for president. The son of Italian immigrants, Lee Iacocca rose spectacularly through the ranks of Ford Motor Company to become its president, only to be toppled eight years later in a power play that should have shattered him.

Publisher's Summary

He's an American legend, a straight-shooting businessman who brought Chrysler back from the brink and in the process became a media celebrity, newsmaker, and a man many had urged to run for president.

The son of Italian immigrants, Lee Iacocca rose spectacularly through the ranks of Ford Motor Company to become its president, only to be toppled eight years later in a power play that should have shattered him. But Lee Iacocca didn't get mad, he got even. He led a battle for Chrysler's survival that made his name a symbol of integrity, know-how, and guts for millions of Americans.

In his classic hard-hitting style, he tells us how he changed the automobile industry in the 1960s by creating the phenomenal Mustang. He goes behind the scenes for a look at Henry Ford's reign of intimidation and manipulation. He recounts the miraculous rebirth of Chrysler from near bankruptcy to repayment of its $1.2 billion government loan so early that Washington didn't know how to cash the check.

    "where is the rest of the book?"
    What would have made Iacocca better?

    I had the cassette version in the 90's. This book has only about 15% of the content. Why don't you tell us this is only a small portion of the original version before we buy it?

    "not a biography"
    What would have made Iacocca better?

    this is a very superficial account of the mans life very little insight into what makes him tick, cant really learn much from this


    Has Iacocca turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    How could the performance have been better?

    a true detailed biography not the huge gaps like this one


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    cant say so


    Any additional comments?

    don waste the credit
