review 1: While not knowing much about cars or what happened when the government bailed out the auto industry, this book did not seem like something I would enjoy. My local library had the audiobook for $2 though and being on the road so much I figured I couldn't go wrong for $2. Maybe I would even learn something. Am I happy to say that my $2 was well spent!

With the economy changing so much, this is a great book to read and see how the auto industry did not move fast enough to make these necessary changes. (Audiobook)

It also illustrates the difference in the mindset of a company like Honda vs. the American manufacturers. Really, it was quite an interesting read. less
