Format: Paperback
I read this book for business school and enjoyed it thoroughly enough to recommend it to friends and family who are interested in the recent history of business. This book documents the major events and themes in American Business during the past 80 years. The writing gives enough detail without being boring. In addition, I found it interesting to see how certain themes persist through time proving that history does repeat itself. The book is a very quick read and provides the reader with enough information on each era. After that, the reader can use the suggested reading list to learn more about the subjects, eras and people that might interest him/her. Overall, a great read.

If you are looking for a reference, look elsewhere. However, if you want an introductory lesson on the making of modern American business, this is just the right book for you. It roughly outlined some of the most prominent American companies (Proctor & Gamble, and McDonald). The book is narrated in a mostly objective and linear perspective, categorized by topics. I would recommend anyone to read this book, not just business students, but everyone who's interested in business.

A post-Chandlerian account of American history.
Very informative. Much of the oral history and anecdotes that I have come across over the years are systematised by McCraw.
