    1. This book is more personal to me because I worked for the Company at the same time. When the book was published, we were advised by upper management. A writer from Rolling Stone was denied access to our plant but, allegedly, he was able to still gain access to our local union rep, plus a couple of other factory employees. It was a tumultuous time for us all so this book strikes a personal nerve with me. #billmaher #ceo #politicallyincorrect #beverlyhills
