Wow. So sad. The author spends about a year observing a crew dismantle the Budd auto plant in Detroit. You feel like you're witnessing a death. He does a great job of including little tidbits about what the company newsletter bragged about in 1987 or how the UAW used to be this force of nature. Not anymore. So well-written, but depressing.
