5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos to the author. Very well done, February 26, 2010
This is an excellent book. On the one hand, I really enjoyed reading about the history of the auto history. I'm in my late 50s and reading about old brands of cars from the 50s onward was fascinating. On the other hand, reading about the financial history of the companies and the reason for their economic collapse was also very illuminating. I also recently read "Too Big To Fail" and "House of Cards" both about our recent financial panic. Both were quite good but "Crash Course" was even better. It was hard to put down and go to bed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacked balance, July 3, 2009
I wasn't very impressed with this book. I felt it lacked objectivity and was a bit too drawn out in numerous cases. The author seemed to have an axe to grind with the Bush administration. While I am not very sympathetic
with the Bush administration's management of the war, this book appears to be just one of many liberal denunciations of the war. In other words, I really didn't learn much new. I also prefer to read more balanced accounts of contemporary history.
