What are the twelve myths holding back America’s industrial sector?  Tom Crumm recounts what it was like to work in auto factories before the last of the

craftsmen retired.  He describes production in the days of his grandfathers before the assembly line was introduced and traces the evolution of the business model concocted by Henry Ford in 1903….and how Ford found success in a

business climate where 142 entrepreneurs had already filed for bankruptcy. The story line tracks the decision making of

automotive  leaders from the early days of the auto industry forward to the time when American jobs began to disappear, and lays out a plan for a strategic turnaround that will make you think.
