"There are few real-life business stories that could match that of the downfall of Rover. Twenty years ago it would have been unthinkable that a brand with such a loyal following, that held a special place within the heart of the ordinary British man, could possibly fail. The events that led to the downfall were as tragic as they were predictable." "In an earlier edition of this book, at the point when BMW sold MG Rover, Chris Brady and Andrew Lorenz predicted with astonishing accuracy that the Phoenix takeover of the company was doomed to failure. Here, they tell the full untold story of Rover's downfall, from beginning to end."--BOOK JACKET.

From the award-winning author of Paradise Boys, Scotch and Oranges, and Ghost Dancer, comes End of the Road, Americans fighting their fates, striving to succeed. In the multi-layered, multi-nuanced narratives that readers have come expect in the Mendelson landscape, San Francisco reporter Damian Vrabel goes off looking for America. Returning with 36 tightly written short stories-each exactly 1,000 words-Vrabel chronicles departure and disappointment, betrayal and bereavement. Traveling the length and breadth of the continent, its heartland and its edges-San Diego and Alaska, Key West and Peggy's Cove, even Paris and Prague-Vrabel encounters terminal patients, shell-shocked soldiers, and ex-convicts; the troubled, lost, and bewildered. Witnessing every person's loss, Vrabel helps each to articulate a sad epiphany. Subtitled American Elegies, the book shares it tales of failure-while discovering hope in all of us. As Vrabel-and his readers-look to re-discover the American Dream, they find instead the End of the Road.

The End of the Road is a controversial call to reconsider our American infrastructure, right now before our "stimulus package" is lost on projects with little long term value. As a society, we have not yet noticed the true direction and dire consequences we are forced into by our choices in infrastructure past, present and future. The implications affect almost every area of our lives, from our physical health to that of our economy to our social, ethical and political relations with neighbors whether they are local or across the globe. Whether our goods and services come to us from near or far away.
