Summary expansion
A former General Motors executive tells the dramatic, colourful story of Billy Durant and Alfred Sloan, who founded and led one of the most powerful companies in North America. Durant, a dreamer, gambler and adulterer, got GM started with his deal-making abilities, while Sloan, the intellectual and expert on strategy, made it into the huge success it is today. Pelfrey had access to GM archives, and here he chronicles the ups and downs of both men and the company from the 1870s to the present day. Illustrated with 41 photos, the book also examines the start and growth of the automobile industry, including vivid portraits of such key players as Ford, Buick, Leland, Nash and Olds
