Peter De Lorenzo covers the American auto industry, which he has dubbed a “seething cauldron of brilliance punctuated by flat-out incompetence.” His regular reports are non-partisan, car-centric, and adamantly pro-American. Whether demystifying the buzz surrounding Tesla, or delivering the high-octane truth about Ford’s success, De Lorenzo blends industry insight and powerful prose on his widely-read and influential blog, Autoextremist.com.
In Witch Hunt, De Lorenzo follows Detroit through the auto industry’s most volatile period of time. As Toyota stumbles, and GM and Chrysler are gutted by agenda-besotted politicians and wrong-headed management, De Lorenzo blisters paint with his prose as his love of good cars and the True Believers who build them alternates with his contempt for those who stand in the way of good product and sensible business practices. Witch Hunt is more than just a compelling analysis of a dysfunctional industry; it’s a call to action demanding that the blithering idiots in Detroit, Washington and beyond step aside and let the pride in our country’s automotive industry be restored.
