I am admittedly a bit of a history geek and especially find innovative creators in history fascinating. The fact that this interaction between Thomas Edison and Henry Ford happened is very interesting to me and I'm sure it is very encouraging to creative, inventive children who read this book. It is so important with anything you do to 'keep at it'. Life is full of trial and error, fails and misses. The important thing is that we don't give up and we don't let ourselves feel defeated. We 'keep at it'. ( )

Henry Ford is driven (pun intended) to create a gasoline powered vehicle, yet his inventions never succeed. One day he is able to meet with Thomas Edison, who he looks up to as an inventor. Edison gives Ford the secret to success as an inventor.
