This was an outstanding book. What I enjoyed about the book are the two prospectives given about the two types of entrepreneurs. Those whose efforts were predicated on their efforts without government involvement vs those that received government subsidies in producing a product or service. I was especially impressed by what John D. Rockefeller accomplished with Standard Oil. This is a must read for those young entreprenuers whose interest is providing a product or service that serves not only the interest of the entrepreneur, but the employees and customers. At the heart of a "true entrepreneur", is to provide a product or service at the best possible price where it is a win-win for all involved. This example is best told from the standpoint of John D. Rockefeller.
