    America was made manifest by its cars. From the assembly lines of Henry Ford to the open roads of Route 66 and Jack Kerouac, America's history is a vehicular history-an idea brought brilliantly to life in this major work by the acclaimed author of Crash Course: The American Automobile Industry's Road from Glory to Disaster.

    What did you love best about Engines of Change?

    the interesting vignettes about the cars and their history


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    this is similar to crash course


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    there are parts that have to make you laugh out loud


    Any additional comments?

    Paul Ingrassia wrote two books. This one and crash course. Crash course has a lot of the same material (even to the point of verbatim repetition). This book covers some of what Crash course covers but more superficially. If you are only going to read one of the two books Paul Ingrassia wrote, read crash course. It covers the history better and the same stories are in that book as well. I really think the author had enough material for a book and a half but wrote two.
    One other note. The narrator in this book and crash course reads slowly. I found I was able to play the book at 2x (iphone option but might be on your player as well) and understand it perfectly.
