Taub, author of Gaffers, Grips and Best Boys ( LJ 11/15/87), presents this unique account of the Ford Taurus, a car developed in the 1980s and named after the astrological sign of the wives of its conceptual engineers. In addition, he outlines how Henry Ford built a dynasty, candidly presenting a picture of the never-ending turmoil that created the many powerplays for control of the company. Taub enthusiastically shows the joys, politics, disappointments, arguments, anger, and frustration that are found at all levels of management in a large research and development industry, interspersed with personal glimpses into the lives of key personnel. Although written for the general reader, specialists and scholars will find his study to be an interesting account of how corporate strategy is developed and challenged. Highly recommended.
