This was the first historically fact-based novel I ever read that actually captivated and held my attention through-out. I did not expect and was pleasantly surprised by the fast moving, high action story line. The book follows the fascinating and tragic lives of cereal magnate W.K. Kellogg, his lesser known brother John Harvey Kellogg and business rival C.W. Post. Hencey wonderfully captures the twisting and often rarely known events that wove together these men's personal and professional worlds, while telling a full-bodied tale of how their unique ambitions carved lasting marks on American history.
