5.0 out of 5 stars Stiles Vanderbilt Biography is Good Beyond Words, May 2, 2009
This review is from: The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt (Hardcover)
I don't often write "reviews" because I would prefer to spend the time reading. But Stiles new book demands high praise and unreserved recommendation to any readers who enjoy good history, colorful life stories and well written and compelling narrative. The Vanderbilt story, his times, and Stiles fine writing make this long history pulse with the "can't put it down" quality of a great mystery. This truly is a must-read, and a joy from cover to cover. At the end I only wanted more!

I totally agree with this review. Absolutely the best book I have ever read! (Have read a LOT!) Much history not learned in school. Fascinating, reading hardcover, hard to read in bed so big, but I don't want to lay it down!
