“Steven Rattner shows a journalist's eye for detail . . .

Overhaul is a feast of political and financial intrigue.†—Detroit Free Press In Overhaul, Steven Rattner delivers an inside account of the Obama administration's bold bid to save the auto industry. From his vantage point at the helm of the intervention, Rattner crafts a tightly plotted narrative of political brinksmanship, corporate incompetence, and personalities under pressure in a high-stakes drama of Washington and Detroit. He also explains the tough choices he and his team made to keep Chrysler and GM in operation—while working against the clock in the face of intense lobbying from staunch Democratic allies and vocal opposition from free-market partisans.

     Overhaul is a candid, gripping story of one of the most difficult crises of President Obama's first year in office, with ons relevant for all managers and executives. “[An] exhaustive, detailed account . . . Overhaul will certainly be on the bookshelf of every bankruptcy attorney in the country, and become required reading for public policy and law students.†—New York Times “Unquestionably the best book so far about the Obama presidency.†—Slate With a new epilogue
