But not so many that look at the first years of Detroit, ones that were formative to the city we know today. R.J. King â€” an award-winning journalist, author and editor of dBusiness â€” joined me in the studio today to talk about his new book, â€œDetroit: Engine of America.â€ From the description: As the populace sputtered and grew, they developed the machinery and skilled trades that produced in volume wagons, stagecoaches, steamships, hearths, locomotives, boxcars, furniture, stoves, equipment, marine engines, pharmaceutical drugs, and finally, the horseless carriage.

King So if youâ€™re into Detroit history and the â€œhowâ€ of Detroit happened and found success, have a listen. If youâ€™re interested in the book, you can pick it up here.
