    Detriot - An American Autopsy

    -First hand account by a native son who writes about the waste within Detroit. How the human condition deteriorated to the point that basic human concerns for others is abandoned. Good read.

    Detroit

    If you want a book that will raise your blood pressure at the venality and spinelessness of bureaucrats, this is the one. Was very good at acquainting the reader with a host of colorful characters, as well as making us feel the pain of those who lost loved ones to senseless violence and drug abuse. The author doesn't offer solutions; but he paints a vivid picture of life in a place of urban decay.

    Amazing

    Fantastic! I really enjoyed this view into what has happened to this city. I think it's a warning to the rest of us that this can happen if we let corruption run rampant.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    A terrific and compelling read by former New York Times staff writer Charlie LeDuff, who moves back to Detroit in 2010 and writes about the myriad characters who make up the underside of this once great American city. With his keen eye, LeDuff takes you into the centre of the action--cops, crooks, hustlers, hard scrabble folk--he writes with an intensity, honesty, and humour. He goes beyond the cliches and "blame game" and tells us real stories about real people, including himself. Reads like a cross between Elmore Leonard meets Malcolm Gladwell. Highly recommended
