"I rad this book in one sitting. In spite of the easy reading of the text, the book has profound meaning for the nature of business in America, with implications for political philosophy and economic theory. There isn't a businessman in the country who would not profit from the reading of this important book."
"The Myth of the Robber Barons" is a lively, well written and informative introduction to the subject. It is a useful source for students of American history.
"The Myth of the Robber Barons is...excellent... In short, this book is the perfect supplement to most standard economic and business history textbooks. This reviewer had adopted it already."
"The subtlest essay makes James J. Hill an American hero as the only man who built a transcontinental railroad without government subsidy.... The most daring attempt at revision is the author's paean to John D. Rockefeller."
