In Praise of Janesville: The 2017 800-CEO-READ Business Book of the Year

By Sally Haldorson, published January 18, 2018, at 4:00 PM – Filed under: Current Events & Public Affairs, Narrative & Biography, Publishing Industry, The Company

Eminently accessible, instantly absorbable, Janesville is a story of economics lived. Of the decisions a monolithic company makes that results in economic devastation for a middle-American town, and the families that live there. A microcosmic illustration of a national experience, Janesville is about idealism and stubbornness and desperation and bravery. And we all can learn a lot about ourselves and our capacity for resilience from the children whose stories are at the heart of Janesville.
