Crash Course

Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Ingrassia describes the state of America’s auto industry and reveals the reasons for President Barack Obama’s decision to save Chrysler despite the opposition of many of his advisors. His book Crash Course: The American Automobile Industry’s Road from Glory to Disaster takes us from factory floors to dealerships, and from Detroit's boardrooms to the White House, and tells a story of hubris, denial, missed opportunities, and self-inflicted damage.
