"Warren, one of the best historians of the American steel industry, has used newly available papers to craft the fullest, most balanced account of Schwab's professional life to date, while offering new details of how Bethlehem Steel became the great business enterprise it was for the first seventy-five years of the twentieth century."
PA Magazine of History and Biography
“In his marvelous business biography of Charles Schwab, Kenneth Warren demonstrates yet again his talents as a historian of industrial America. Warren's portrait of Schwab is beautifully written, superbly documented, and filled with insights. It is the perfect complement to his earlier and equally superb biography of Henry Frick.”
