"Driven: A Photobiography of Henry Ford" is a riveting profile of the man whose invention revolutionized American life: the industrial visionary who changed the automobile from rich man's toy into affordable necessity. Don Mitchell weaves archival images from the Benson Ford Research Center with quotes from Ford's writings, speeches, and interviews to create a lively, comprehensive profile of this intriguing individual.
Fiercely independent, and a man of complex contradictions, Henry Ford is revealed above all as a man driven to achieve his dream of building "a motor car for the great multitude," accessible to all. "Driven" includes a time line, resource list, and index.
