A bit leftist, but not a total waste of time for the thoughtful reader. Beware of accepting the premises of the author.

what the fathers of the states did more than hundred years ago, still means a lot to us now. Only to be unsatisfied with the present, and to be more efficient, labor saving, can we divise those new ways to do what should be done. And in such way, the civilization of humanity developed.

When I got the book I did not realize it was written in 1919. But what a pleasant surprise to hear a perspective from this time period. This short book is a quick read but covers the topic of the captains while adding keen insights and admiration mixed with caution.

The Age Of Big Business: This book is surprisingly excellent. I am in Healthcare and have virtually no interest in big business however, I found this book at my local library while looking for something else and started reading a random page. This book speaks of the Industrial Revolution with Vanderbuilt, Edison, Rockfeller, etc and how they made their fortunes. Engagingly written and insiteful. I highly recommend this book for anyone ages 16-adult It's very easy to read and keeps your interest! Read it and enjoy.
