I liked understanding the car industry over time and how it evolved and changed. However, Lutz was clearly talking about his own career and the title should have been something like "My life in the car industry" so you understood that it was his personal experience (and opinion).
His rants about "the liberal media" the "misdirected right" was too much opinion for the book the way it was represented.
He clearly was jealous of how the Japanese (and their car companies) were "idols" and later how Ford was the "darling" of the media.
he claims to have predicted most things correctly and makes himself to be a hero in this story--again, mistitled story
change the title to be more representative of what it is and delete the ending chapter where he writes about how he would have done things differently
NO--at least not by this egomaniac
No, too long but loved it
Very long but fascinating--David McCollough does great work and I will read anything he writes
No--most of it was informative and interesting but he ended up talking about his other views, outside of banking, which were a bit weird
NO--the banking part was interesting, even when he talked about his own bank, but the rest was boring
Most of the book was interesting, but seemed to be poorly edited, especially at the end. At one point the author pointed to poor education for minorities (when talking about minimum wage problems) and said that they could not get jobs so they ended up dealing drugs and then got thrown into jail. This should have been edited out or modified because it sounded very strange.
