In Overhaul, Steve Rattner delivers the first insider, high-level account of the Obama administration, telling the dramatic story of one of its most controversial and precedent-shattering decisions: to assume control, force into bankruptcy and completely restructure Chrysler and General Motors.
Overhaul mixes political warfare and big business shakeups in equal proportions, and comes from a uniquely informed source. Steve Rattner, a former New York Times financial reporter who also earned a place among the top tier of Wall Street’s most informed investment bankers and corporate experts, has crafted a tightly plotted narrative of political brinkmanship, corporate mismanagement and personalities under pressure in a high-stakes clash between Washington and Detroit.
