ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION (1926): Curiosly, although our automobile industry is young, its leaders are not young men. Every one of the twenty is self-made. No other industry in this country or anywhere else in the world ever enjoyed such growth or accomplished so much in the brief space of twenty-five years. Our automotive giants are essentially men of courage, men of initiative, men of vision. How else could there have been created productive capacity of over 5,000,000 vehicles a year, when year after year from the very start there have been direful prophesies of impending "saturation", of impending disaster?
How the foremost leaders have brought the automotive industry to its unique eminence is told in short stories, all of which have appeared in Forbes Magazine, half of them written by B. C. Forbes and half by O. D. Foster.
