We also featured The Father of All Things: A Marine, His Son, and the Legacy of Vietnam by Tom Bissell and found a video of Bissell reading and answering questions in the Authors @ Google program.
For the 2008 Detroit Auto Show segment, we used murcielago roadster by joojanta and I’ll Take This One! by suesue2. We were also going to include this video of Kid Rock and the 2009 Corvette at the 2008 GM Style event, but we ran out of time!
