Description:

Ask nearly anyone what Henry Ford invented and they'll give you two answers- the automobile and the assembly line. The truth is that he invented neither. Here, acclaimed historian Lawrence Goldstone rewrites the birth of the automobile and gives credit where it's long been due. Revelatory and captivating, Drive! features the innovators, entrepreneurs, and daredevils who steered the automobile through its wild early days--from Karl Benz and Marcel Renault to Ransom Olds and the Dodge brothers to Camille du Gast and Barney Oldfield to the man, forgotten by history, who actually held the original patent on the technology at the heart of it all--and along the way teaches invaluable business lessons.
