    Saw him speak at my college a few years ago. Fascinating guy.

    Just heard about it at the end of SportsCenter. Dammit. His work inspired me to get into the writing biz.

    The Reckoning made the subject of the rise of Japanese auto makers accessible to many people who would have never thought it through without this book. A valuable citizen, gone. RIP David.
