Ford and the American Dream: Founded On Right Decisions
This fictionalized account of what went wrong at Ford Motor company provides not only what went wrong, but more importantly lists the steps needed to get Ford back on track.
The fact that many of Clifton's suggestions have been implemented at Ford, and Ford has gone from losing $12 billion in several years to generating $100 million in profit is testimony to the books wisdom and insight.
This book is the real stuff for anyone looking for business guidance and ideas.

A Must Read! Lambreth created a fictionalized account of Ford's history and path for recovery. Oct 9, 2007
Clifton Lambreth has written an insiders view of Ford Motor Company and the mis-steps that have landed them where they are today. He explains a complex business model of a mega corporation using fictionalized characters. (I have to believe one of them is actually a character of himself.) It's an easy read that I would recommend for anyone interested in Ford, the auto industry or American business.
