Did you read it? Iacocca might agree with you, to a certain extent.

I found it a tad hypocritical that he pisses and moans about Bob Eaton selling out Chrysler back in the late 90's, when he personally chose him over a higher qualified and more loyal Bob Lutz.

Other than not, I'm taking a wait-and-see on his book...

Mcp001-
You may be right, however, I believe at one time Iacocca admitted that the biggest mistake he ever made was to put Eaton at the head of Chrysler instead of Lutz. He knows it was a mistake and I believe he still kicks himself over it.

Just an aside.

This might be a fun read. Might not have much real meat, but maybe still fun.

I was reading some of the reviews earlier, and it seems that this wasn't the only thing that he has waffled on.

Looking at the pic of him on the cover, he is either constipated or needs to give up cigar smoking.

Where have all the leaders gone?

In school, church, society as a whole we are conditioned/taught to follow someone else. What if there is no one left to follow? What shall we do? Could we think for ourselves?
