Well-written and thought-provoking,

This review is from: The Last Days of Detroit: Motor Cars, Motown and the Collapse of an Industrial Giant (Hardcover)
The decline of Detroit has been covered often by the media and locals are unsurprisingly unhappy at the coverage their city receives from journalists who are only passing through. However, this is almost certainly the best book that you will read on the subject, partly because Binelli is a Detroit native and partly because he's an excellent writer, bringing wit and humour where appropriate even to a serious subject. What has happened to Detroit is a salutary lesson to other American and Western cities but their is hope among the gloom as a group of pioneers attempt to construct a post-capitalist society. Overall, well worth a read.
