Editorial Reviews

Review

Snow “gets to the meat of a biographer’s task— demonstrating how psychology and circumstances blend to create a life… Snow’s supple and informative effort reminds us that although we’ve bought the automobiles and the assembly line, we continue to wrestle with the issues that concerned their creator.”, Harper's

“Highly readable.”, Publishers Weekly

“Richard Snow’s lively biography will make you rethink the man whose legacy sits in your garage.”, Parade

"Snow displays excellent storytelling skill as, stiffening by the years, Ford’s
character develops through anecdotes and events in a lively narrative sequence that will engross readers.", Booklist

"The 'T' itself is a protagonist in Mr. Snow's often lyrical book.", Wall Street Journal

“Stylistically, Snow mimics the marvelously folksy, protean temperament of his subject, dwelling on Ford’s early mechanical inventions rather than his latter problematic prickliness, and everywhere portraying a compelling character.”, Kirkus

"Richard Snow skilfully evokes everything from patenting battles to internal-combustion dramas — and his bullheaded subject, who set out to remake America, and succeeded.", Nature Magazine

I Invented the Modern Age is the amazing story of an amazing man, told with wit, insight, style, and zest. Richard Snow makes the invention of the automobile intelligible and fascinating even to car ignoramuses such as myself. His story of Ford theman is simply riveting. This is history as it should always be told.” -- Kevin Baker, author of Strivers Row

"Richard Snow presents a biography of a brilliant, difficult and strange man, a technological thriller about the most important machine he made, and a social history of the country it transformed. You live in the world Henry Ford made; here is how it happened. I Invented the Modern Age is clear, amusing, stern and poignant." -- Richard Brookhiser, author of James Madison

"No one has told the story of Henry Ford’s incredible rise and achievements better than Richard Snow in this book." -- Steve Forbes, Forbes Magazine

About the Author

Richard Snow spent nearly four decades at American Heritage magazine, serving as editor in chief for seventeen years, and has been a consultant on historical motion pictures, among them Glory, and has written for documentaries, including the Burns brothers’ Civil War, and Ric Burns’s award-winning PBS film Coney Island, whose screenplay he wrote. He is the author of multiple books, including, most recently, Disney’s Land.
