Can American Manufacturing Be Saved? Why We Should and How We Can By Michele Nash-Hoff Nonfiction $29.95 ISBN: 978-0-615-28213-8 Available at www.savingusmanufacturing.com and www.amazon.com For more information, contact the author at Michele@savingusmanufacturing.com Two years and a great deal of research later comes Can American Manufacturing Be Saved? Why We Should and How We Can. To say this book provides a thorough backdrop to understanding the history of American manufacturing is an understatement. Says Dave Nuffer, chairman of Nuffer, Tucker & Smith, “From chapter one, a brilliant mini-history of American manufacturing, to the closing prescription for recovery and ensuing pep talk, this book will keep you riveted to your chair. The U.S. has been the world’s preeminent economic force for more than a century. Will it be so at the close of this one? The author says ‘No’ unless we wake up and reclaim our failing destiny.” Says Steve Cozzetto, president of Century Rubber Company, “Michele Nash-Hoff’s perspective and analysis…can only be attained by someone who has seen it from the trenches and not from an ivory tower. Readers will come to realize the importance of ‘Made in the U.S.A.’” Nash-Hoff herself adds, “I firmly believe that if we don’t save manufacturing, we will lose our middle class because manufacturing jobs are the foundation of the middle class.” Anyone interested in manufacturing and/or the middle class will find riveting reading in this well-written and thoroughly researched book. # # # Author: Michele Nash-Hoff is president of ElectroFab Sales.
