Summary Henry Ford's classic treatise on life and business Written by the legendary inventor and industrialist who pioneered the American automotive industry, My Life and Work is a unique combination of memoir and business treatise. In straightforward and inviting prose, Henry Ford describes his early life as a mechanically inclined farmer's son, the inner workings of his famed motor company, and the development of the Model T. He provides analysis and commentary on some of his key business decisions, including his resolution to compensate workers well beyond the prevailing wage and his commitment to building a diverse workforce composed of "about the same proportions as a cross-section of a society in general." My Life and Work is an enduring American classic that captures the musings and philosophical considerations of one of the country's greatest visionaries. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
