It has been February , I completed 20 years of my driving career : and I realized that as my first drivers license finally expired. It has been my favorite for last three decades, loved Mustang in so many western movies that I must have seen in last as many years. Unfortunately it is so steeply priced in India that it happens to be way more expensive than the price of the house I live in currently. Throughout the day, the only thing we did was talk about Cars, Bikes and Movies.

Summary[ edit ] In part 1 of the book, Iacocca speaks of his Italian immigrant family and his experiences at school. He was offered a job at Ford straight out of college, but at the same time, he was offered a fellowship for a graduate degree at Princeton University. He took the fellowship with the promise of a job after leaving Princeton. In his year at Princeton, his recruiter was drafted into the war and by the time he was finished with school, no one at Ford had heard of him.

After explaining what had happened, he was given the 51st spot on the training group. In part 2, "The Ford Story", Iacocca tells of his triumph of the Mustang and his climb to power in the company. He established a plot to fire Iacocca, and Iacocca was to resign from the company on October 15, , his 54th birthday. On July 13, , the loan was paid back in full and Chrysler began to flourish. The final portion of the book, titled "Straight Talk", consists of rhetoric arguing for legislation compelling Americans to wear seatbelts , the high cost of labor, the Japanese challenge, and making America great again.

In The Office, Michael and Donna discuss the book at happy hour.

He is fast-talking, blunt, boastful, and unabashedly patriotic. Lee Iacocca is also a genuine folk hero. His career is breathtaking. A couple of months prior to finding this book I had seen the Ford v Ferrari movie, a movie I can highly recommend to everyone.
