How did Billy Durant come to exercise so broad an influence in the emerging auto industry? And why has he been virtually forgotten for decades?In search of answers to these questions, Lawrence Gustin turned to Durant's widow, who provided a wealth of previously unpublished material in the form of autobiographical notes, letters, and Durant's personal papers. In addition, Gustin interviewed Durant's widow, two of his personal secretaries, and others who had known and worked with the man who created General Motors.
