Having been downsized by a multinational, I find myself wishing I had been working for a real human being like Frank.

The book does suffer a bit where Frank offers up a number of political philosophies and proposals. Frank started his real education at 14 as an apprentice tool and die maker and, no fault of his own, missed out on the broadening of perspective that university can offer. That said, he can run intellectual circles around most MBAs.

I highly recommend this book to anybody entering the work force as it shows the kind of boss and company you want to be working for.

A well told story of creating an empire, business practices and best of all "Fair Enterprise" that is unique to the Magna family. You could tell he was telling his story with pride and respect for all his employees, he does not forget changing the lives of the people in his home town. Frank has gone after any challenge with success while creating employment and wealth a long the way and remains a proud toolmaker/craftsmen at heart.
