    When we think of Detroit, we think first of the auto industry and its slow, painful decline, then maybe the sounds of Motown, or the long line of professional sports successes. But economies are made up of people, and the effect of the economic downfall of Detroit is one of the most compelling stories in America. Detroit: A Biography by journalist and author Scott Martelle is about a city that rose because of the most American of traits - innovation, entrepreneurship, and an inspiring perseverance.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Detroit to be better than the print version?

    NOOOOO. The narrator clearly knew nothing about Detroit and his pronunciation of local place names was atrocious! What a terrible oversight for a book ABOUT Detroit, and the publisher was from Chicago. Lame


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Well written and researched.


    What didn’t you like about William Hughes’s performance?

    He clearly knew nothing about Detroit. I got distracted part way through and started making a list of all the words he mispronounced.
