or an interview
After reading, I believe that Henry is really great man, he is so brilliant and tough, he deserve everybody?s respect. This man is really smart. He was born in a prosperous family farm, he showed his interest in mechanical things when he was young, and became a engineer when he grew up. His talent showed in his company and he was promoted to Chief Engineer. Ten years later, he founded his own motor company. He was also a good businessman, he made his production take up half of the world?s car market via four strategies:1.design his factory completely around assembly line.2.rise production and low prices.3.raise workers? pay.4.give back 50 dollars to each person who had bought a Ford car. His company got to be very successful at a time, but the quantity of sale went down with new competitor?s appear and Henry?s death. People in America believe he changed their lives. The important quotations in the article is : “he was one of several automotive pioneers who helped this country become a nation of motorists.”
After reading the novel, I think my question is solved, Henry invented engine just out of fun---he like mechanical things The reading taught me that every success is not easy to achieve, if we want to be that kind of man, we must work hard. But “why Henry disagree d to let ?Model T? go at first?”remains an question for our classmates.
