  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Holly | 2/2/2014

    " I liked the first half of this book a lot (because it focused on finding Mulally) and would have given it 4 stars. The second half caused me to give it a 3. It got too bogged down in the details and wasn't quite as interesting to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by David | 1/24/2014

    " Most well written business story I've read so far. Couldn't put it down. Blow by blow account of how Allen Mulally restructured Ford. Stark contrast with another family held American icon in trouble - HP (Carly Fiorina's book). "
