Reviews

"The book presents an engrossing courtroom drama, an acerbic indictment of bank policy that's also fair to the difficulties that business managers face, and communitarian paeans to blue-collar America: "This was my childhood. This was the American Dream." The result is a compelling story of a struggle for economic survival that strives to get beyond ideological polarization and highlight ways that unions, businesses, and governments can help ordinary people. An inspiring saga of grassroots political cooperation."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"A captivating and comprehensive account."-BookLife Reviews
