Product Details


“A fascinating inside look at how ego and hubris destroyed an industry . . . a gripping and riveting must-read.”—James B. Stewart, author of Den of Thieves and Disneywar

Crash Course has the feel of a definitive account. . . . It’s hard to imagine anyone better than Paul Ingrassia to ‘ride shotgun’ on a journey through the sometimes triumphant, often turbulent, history of U.S. automaking. . . . [A] wealth of amusing, astonishing and enlightening nuggets.”—Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“In order to understand just how much of a mess it was—not to mention how it got that way and how, if at all, it can be cleaned up—you really need to read Crash Course.”—The Washington Post
“Ingrassia tells Detroit’s story with economy, vigour and restrained fury.”—The Economist
“A delightful mix of history and first-person reporting . . . Employing superb storytelling skills, Ingrassia explains in head-shaking detail the elements of a wholly avoidable collision.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
