This book is a good introduction to the beginnings of American industrialization, although it's fairly light reading and presents only an overview of very complex issues. It centers on the often uneasy personal and business relationship between two of the giants of industry, Carnegie and Frick. Standiford writes clearly and is very even-handed in describing early dealings between labor and management, and events such as the Homestead strike, and left me wanting to learn more.

A wonderful book full of plot, counter-plot, subversion, temptation..and it is all fact! The world was a different place and it is interesting to see how the steel industry and industry as a whole changed because of the behaviors of these two men. Mr. Standiford writes in a way that makes sense and does not overwhelm the reader with trivialities that detract from the subject. I wholeheartedly recommend this read!
