The Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year 2017

 

This is the story of what happens to an industrial town in the American heartland when its factory stills - but it’s not the familiar tale. Most reporters note the immediate shock of vanished jobs, but few stay around long enough to observe what happens next when a community with a can-do spirit tries to pick itself up.

 

“Moving and magnificently well-researched...Janesville joins a growing family of books about the evisceration of the working class in the United States. What sets it apart is the sophistication of its storytelling and analysis.” The New York Times

“Ms. Goldstein’s book takes its place alongside those other essential tomes of the Trump era, J.D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis and Joan Williams’ White Working Class: Overcoming Class Cluelessness in America.” Financial Times
