it was amazing

Great book, easy to read

What a pleasure reading the life stories of these industrial titans of the 1800s, early 1900s era. The author gives just the right balance of detail to give the personages depth and also keep the reader fully engaged in the adventure of their rise to fame and business success. It was also so refreshing to have a historical narrative from a pro-market point of view.

The author brilliantly tells the bare facts of their life stories and the economic conclusions are self evident to the reader.

Highly recommend!
