KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Nevins begins his story with that of Lehman's father and uncles who built their fortunes in the antebellum South, and he carries it across more than a century of finance and politics to the defeat of De Sapio and Tammany Hall in New York City's 1961 elections. It is the story of a good man who spent a long life working very hard for things in which he really believed. Such a story is always worth our while.
