Overview

Once Upon a Car: The Fall and Resurrection of America's Big Three Automakers--GM, Ford, and Chrysler by Bill Vlasic

As Rhode acknowledges, her framework for The Beauty Bias owes much to The Beauty Myth, by Naomi Wolf, which lit up the feminist stratosphere almost 20 years ago. Wolf argued that because appearance matters so much for their success—in work, love and almost everything else—women were sacrificing the gains of feminist liberation on the altar of breast implants and doomed diets. It would be lovely to dismiss this analysis as outdated. But of course it isn't, as Rhode convincingly shows.
—The New York Times

This book was informative, entertaining and provided a real "behind the scenes" look at Detroit's automobile crisis and how it rebounded. Many thought the government bailout was the only reason GM and Chrysler survived... not so. Excellent material; Mr. Vlasic did his research well!!!

I enjoyed a thorough, straight-up discussion of recent events in the auto industry and in our country. It treated the subject objectively and I gained insight into the issue in a new way. I really enjoyed this read -

I enjoyed this book a lot. If you are interested in cars, and or the usa economy, then this is for you. The book covers greed, incompetence and lack of foresight. Nice plain and simple words. I agree with the other reviewer, when do they start to shoot the film? George Clooney plays Bob Lutz, Michael Douglas Alan Mullaly.
