    It wasn't that bad actually.

    He does go through a reasonable description of the post-WW2 issues (1950's, 1960's, 1970's) surrounding the total failure of the British motor industry, the partial failure of the US motor industry, and the complete success of Germany and Japan. IIRC the only German marque that he uses to represent Germany is BMW, whereas he uses examples from most of the Japanese marques.

    But it was typical "May" in that some of the bits were drawn out a tad too long. An interesting postulation though right at the end.
