Summary:

The modern American economy was the creation of four men:Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould, and J. P. Morgan. They werethe giants of the Gilded Age, a moment of riotous growth that establishedAmerica as the richest, most inventive, and most productive country on theplanet.
Acclaimed author Charles R. Morris vividly brings these menand their times to life. The ruthlessly competitive Carnegie, the imperialRockefeller, and the provocateur Gould were obsessed with progress, experiment,and speed. They were balanced by Morgan, the gentleman businessman, who fought,instead, for a global trust in American business. Through their antagonism and verve,they built an industrial behemoth-and a country of middle-class consumers. The Tycoons tells the incredible storyof how these four determined men wrenched the economy into the modern age,inventing a nation of full economic participation that could not have beenimagined only a few decades earlier.

    Boring. Too long discontinuous. Uninteresting. I tried to listen to it for few hours. Never really felt interesting.
