    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.

    Story

    Most of my reading is history of some sort. This book caught my attention both for its historical/cultural content and because I have a moderate interest in cars. My first car was a 1970 Camaro. I found this book to be very enjoyable, a nice change of pace from my usual reading. Ford enthusiasts will especially appreciate the book as the author seems to me to lean a bit in Ford's favor. Perhaps that's just a reflection of my Chevy bias. I now drive a Silverado and an Impala. Foreign car makers are included as well. The section on the Honda success story was quite good as was that on the Beetle. Even the chapter on the Prius was tolerable (just barely). Highly recommended for a relaxing summer listen on a trip down memory lane, in the car of your choice.
