When the car he invented became so popular he couldn't build them fast enough he came up with the modern assembly plant to meet demand. The rest is history. BIOGRAPHY profiles the life of the industrial giant who earned notoriety for his intolerance as well as his inventiveness. Interviews with former workers and family members point out his genius and eccentricities while automotive historians trace his monumental career from his first handbuilt car to saving his company with the introduction of the V-8 at an age when most men are long retired.This is the fascinating story of the driven man who changed the way we all live ironically spelling an end to the America he loved.
