  • An Okay Overview

    Although this book would seem to focus on the titular tycoons, it does attempt to place them in the context of the times and the other events that were happening to make their rises possible. Unsurprisingly, the chapters about the tycoons are the more interesting chapters, but the other chapters do help. I think the other chapters also help dispell that these four men "invented the American Supereconomy" they had a lot of help from men who did not go on to amass tremendous wealth or fame. This book does a good job of giving a quick overview of the things these four did, and is a good start before jumping into biographies of the specific men.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Well balanced

    I've read about this era of American business before, but this one is unusual for the breadth of industrial history. I was surprised that Mr. Morris gives such a well-balanced portrayal of the "robber barons" as most accounts make them out to be either devils or geniuses.

    Thanks for your feedback!
