Yes, to the author; NO to the narrator.
Interesting story about the formation of the auto industry, and GM in particular. Good character studies of the principles; Durant, Sloan, and Henry Ford.
The main negative is with the narrator who had a very strange quirk that I have never heard any other narrator do as a long-time Audible listener. Whenever he read a direct quote, he lowered his voice an octave and delivered the quote in a shy, quiet way... as if he were delivering a secret that he didn't want anyone to overhear except the listener. There was absolutely no need to do this - the narrative made it very clear that it was a quote - and why the narrator felt he had to significantly alter his delivery is a complete mystery. The reason this was a big problem is I listen in my car, and I continually had to crank up the volume every time he read a quote. It was VERY ANNOYING... and for absolutely no reason.
I would have forced the narrator to deliver the story consistently, rather than lowering his voice every time he came to a quote.
