"I highly, highly recommend this book to anyone who is in the least bit interested in the life and times of one of the most hard working, democratic, and visionary leaders the auto industry has never known. The name “Edsel” should not by synonymous with failure, but with struggling against tremendous odds in the pursuit of what is right." - Christopher A. Sawyer, The Virtual Driver
