The 50 Great Pioneers of American Industry
"The U.S. economy is the largest, most successful and the most widely beneficial of all mankind's collective achievements. Yet its foundations are stubbornly and sturdily individual. This book is about the men who laid the basis, charted the direction and directed the shape of U.S. industry, and the thriving economy which it sustains. These pioneers were expanding the frontiers of enterprise and opportunity, each in his own way, in his own time, of his own volition."
