Â “Mondo Agnelli is a wonderful book that captures the highly colorful bistroy of Fiat and the Agnelli family
from the company’s earliest days in 1899 to the amazing turbulance that led to trhe merger of
Chrysler and Fiat a few years ago. Ms Clark has done an exhaustive review of the literature and conducted
a large number of personsal interviews to create a well-written, riveting, and spectacular story.
As someone who has followed the industry for many years and knows some of the key players personally,
I feel privileged to have had a chance to review this very special book. If you have even a marginal
interest in the saga of the auto industry, it is a must-read!!”
