Axel Madsen (au). From a turbulent childhood to his phenomenal success in creating General Motors, William Durantís meteoric career is legendary. With his trademark smile & personal charisma, Durant assembled GM in a few short years, buying companies at the rate of one every 30 days. This biography illuminates the conflict between innovation & control of innovation -- of the uneasy alliances struck between inventors & their sources of capital. This true story includes these fascinating auto pioneers -- Henry Ford, David Buick, Charles Nash, Albert Champion, Louis Chevrolet, & Alfred P. Sloan. On Wall Street, J.P. Morgan turned down Durantís request for a loan while Pierre du Pont invested in Durantís expansion. A fast-paced, rousing tale! Photos.
