KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of American industry through the record of the steps by which we achieved mass production:-Whitney's first assembly line musket; Terry's clocks; Paul Revere, pioneer industrialist; machine made tacks and nails; methods of selling; ready-to-wear growing out of second hand clothing business; cheap newspapers and advertising; transportation approaching low freight costs; oil, cheap steel, electricity revolutionize the home. Fascinating reading, human, anecdotal.
