Summary and Info
I have very mixed feelings about this book. The first chapter is awesome. The last section (the last six chapters) is also very good. However, the author seems to ramble on in the middle of the book, concerned more by her ability to impress her audience with a very extensive vocabulary than conveying the compelling and condemning facts against the car. Also, there are several glaring grammatical/spelling errors in the book. The one that comes most readily to mind is where she misspelled Gresham, OR, but there were others too.
