    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.

    "Great intro to Detroit's History."

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

    The reader mispronounces a few street names, but overall, I thought that the reader had an enjoyable tone and cadence.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that it was a concise overview of the history. It is a very thorough overview, hitting many of the important events and diving into a few unique details of each event. The author is very forward about the book not going into detail about unions and the auto industry, but their is enough detail to understand the importance of major events to the trajectory of the city. The book has inspired me to learn more about Detroit and its major historical players.
