Life In The Slow Lane recounts a year the author spent teaching driver education for a cut-rate company in Portland, Oregon. The business playbook for this family-run operation was similar to that of BP -- use something until it breaks, apologize effusively, and then don't change. However, the company became the largest operator in the state primarily because the other companies were worse. Yet, while the cars kept dying, the kids always persevered. Set in a boomtown suburb being overrun by subdivisions and new Starbucks stores, this story portrays the mid-decade shift in America from business integrity to growth and profit by any means possible.
