KIRKUS REVIEW

An apologia for capitalism is interwoven through this series of lives of the great American industrialists. And Horatio Alger had nothing on this galaxy of success-bent men -- Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Wayland Ayer, Andrew Carnegie, Pierre and Lammot du Pont, Henry Clay Frick--who alternately emerge as men of steel, giants fighting windmills, and deliverers of free enterprise. Vigorously written, William Dutton's narrative strongly suggests the two-fisted force that enabled these men to gain economic and political dominance on the stage of America's fast moving, competitive arena.
