really liked it

A legitimately fascinating topic, told with tons of details. The basic gist is: Henry Ford was a wackadoo with some great ideas and some terrible ideas. Here's a shining example of one of his terrible ideas.
This was also my first time ever trying that Kindle feature where you switch between the audiobook and actually reading, and I've gotta say, I am a fan. It worked seamlessly, and worked especially well for this book because every now and then we'd hit a section that was a bit overly-detailed or repetitive for me to get into it (hence not 5 stars), and being able to knock out those sections while showering or walking the dog helped.
