In an uncorrected proof of former auto czar Steven Rattner’s new book, Overhaul, he discusses his involvement in the work to save GM and Chrysler. According to the Post,
Rattner, like other Auto Team members, worked long hours and left family behind in other cities. He spent $400,000 in legal fees in passing the government’s vetting process. And rules meant to make it difficult for lobbyists to get a job with the government also made it difficult for him to hire experts in the auto business.
