Henry Ford was a genius. He also did not get past the 8th grade. And, as rumor has it, had only a 5th grade reading level.
But his library is impressive.
I visited the home of Henry Ford last month. My nephew and his fiance (now wife) chose the historic Ford home as their wedding place. It is truly a magnificent property.
Before the wedding got under way I moseyed around the mansion and came upon the mavericks library. Most of the books were enclosed in plexiglas and I was told these were part of his original library.
I was amazed at how many books there were on health and fitness. Literally dozens and dozens of books on how to live well, eat well, exercise well and so on.
I was drooling.
I took a picture of the few I could as the plexiglas made it extremely difficult to snap a pic without glare.
Here is one of my favorites. I do not know this author but since my book's subtitle is '...exercise that will change your body in 30 minutes a week.' it has a tender place in my heart.
I REALLY wanted to break in and read the Scientific Fasting by Hazzard. But I refrained.
In the pic below we se that Mr. Ford mixes business with pleasure:
These two I'd love to read.
Clearly Ford had a focus on healthy living. And look where it got him.
