This review is from: The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches from the Rust Belt (Paperback)
You don't have to be from Akron Ohio or the rest of the rust belt to love what is written. Gieffels gives you a glimce of life, that happens to be in Akron, but you can easily relate to them: from first job, the odd interview. Snow days with your family and spending time with your best friend around town. One can enjoy the historical contexts both in music, sports and in the former rubber capital.
A very good read that makes you want to read it again
