IN MY READING CERTAIN books were particularly helpful and I used them as pathfinders: John Brooks’s The Go-go Years, Ed Cray’s The Chrome Colossus, William Manchester’s American Caesar, Michael Moritz and Barrett Seaman’s Going for Broke, the Allan Nevins and Frank Ernest Hill three-part history of the Ford Motor Company, William Serrin’s The Company and the Union, Keith Sward’s The Legend of Henry Ford, and John Toland’s The Rising Sun.
