American Icon: Alan Mulally and the Fight to Save Ford Motor Company
In the last couple of months I read a lot about management and leadership. One of the books I really enjoyed is American Icon by Bryce G. Hoffman. It chronicles the epic turnaround of Ford under the leadership of CEO Alan Mulally.
The book is easy to read, but full of interesting lessons. The author also distilled them later in a separate manifesto: Nine Things I Learned from Alan Mulally.
