    The book is a collection of biopics of seven of the greatest visionaries who transformed American industry and/or retail, these being Andrew Carnegie (steel magnate), George Eastman (Kodak), Henry Ford (Ford Motors), Thomas J Watson Senior (IBM), Charles Revson (Revlon), Sam Walton (Wa...

    I read more than half of it over Christmas, when I had time. I loved the perspective: 7 Americans who changed industries, and therefore America and then world. It's honest as to why it's all White men: they had the privileged access in those times and places. It examines their innovati...

    Pretty interesting read. Sheds light on Tota.software the businesses world. . Good. I guess I would recommend to others. Pretty interesting history of some of the USAs most influential people ever. ...

    It's a mixed bag biopic. Some stories were researched well and had a great narrative, some went haywire. I'd not consider this as essential reading. ...

    pretty good overview of the life of a group outstanding entrepreneurs. ...

    If you've never red a business history book and don't know anything about guys like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, Sam Walton, Thomas Watson, etc., then this might be OK to get start. But if you are familiar with them, then you've won't learn much here. I read to learn more about the ...

    I read the book because I was interested in the topic - learning about the most successful people in business over the last approx. 100 years. The writing and the way the book was organized was average. ...

    Learning how Ford and Rockefeller got their start is interesting, even if you think you?ve heard it all before. This profiles innovators in the late 19th century to show how their brilliant minds would still stack up today. Creativity and leadership never goes out of style. ...

    I enjoyed learning about the seven influential business figures presented in this book. Especially some of the figures you don't hear much about. Most know of Ford and Carnegie, but fewer know of Revson and Noyce. Nothing amazing, but well written and well done. ...

    Wonderful little stories about early 1900's business giants. Tedlow is a little turgid. ...

    A must-read book on entrepreneurial success stories for the knowledge worker or aspiring entrepreneur. ...

    i think this book basically its talk about management and how deal with ,and im still reading it ...

    Nothing informs more than history. When history is brought together under a focus, as Richard Tedlow does with this work of art, value expectation can never be too high. It's well crafted. ...

    Useful for perspective, but not truly informative. Somehow a gripping read, though, for non-fiction. ...

    Inspiring profiles of 7 great businessmen: Andrew Carnegie, Thomas J. Watson, George Eastman, Robert Noyce, Charles Revson, Sam Walton, and Henry Ford. The author is an HBS professor. ...

    The book is a collection of biopics of seven of the greatest visionaries who transformed American industry and/or retail, these being Andrew Carnegie (steel magnate), George Eastman (Kodak), Henry Ford (Ford Motors), Thomas J Watson Senior (IBM), Charles Revson (Revlon), Sam Walton (Wa...

    I read more than half of it over Christmas, when I had time. I loved the perspective: 7 Americans who changed industries, and therefore America and then world. It's honest as to why it's all White men: they had the privileged access in those times and places. It examines their innovati...

    Pretty interesting read. Sheds light on Tota.software the businesses world. . Good. I guess I would recommend to others. Pretty interesting history of some of the USAs most influential people ever. ...

    It's a mixed bag biopic. Some stories were researched well and had a great narrative, some went haywire. I'd not consider this as essential reading. ...

    pretty good overview of the life of a group outstanding entrepreneurs. ...

    If you've never red a business history book and don't know anything about guys like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, Sam Walton, Thomas Watson, etc., then this might be OK to get start. But if you are familiar with them, then you've won't learn much here. I read to learn more about the ...

    I read the book because I was interested in the topic - learning about the most successful people in business over the last approx. 100 years. The writing and the way the book was organized was average. ...

    Learning how Ford and Rockefeller got their start is interesting, even if you think you?ve heard it all before. This profiles innovators in the late 19th century to show how their brilliant minds would still stack up today. Creativity and leadership never goes out of style. ...

    I enjoyed learning about the seven influential business figures presented in this book. Especially some of the figures you don't hear much about. Most know of Ford and Carnegie, but fewer know of Revson and Noyce. Nothing amazing, but well written and well done. ...

    The book is a collection of biopics of seven of the greatest visionaries who transformed American industry and/or retail, these being Andrew Carnegie (steel magnate), George Eastman (Kodak), Henry Ford (Ford Motors), Thomas J Watson Senior (IBM), Charles Revson (Revlon), Sam Walton (Wa...

    I read more than half of it over Christmas, when I had time. I loved the perspective: 7 Americans who changed industries, and therefore America and then world. It's honest as to why it's all White men: they had the privileged access in those times and places. It examines their innovati...

    Pretty interesting read. Sheds light on Tota.software the businesses world. . Good. I guess I would recommend to others. Pretty interesting history of some of the USAs most influential people ever. ...

    It's a mixed bag biopic. Some stories were researched well and had a great narrative, some went haywire. I'd not consider this as essential reading. ...

    pretty good overview of the life of a group outstanding entrepreneurs. ...

    If you've never red a business history book and don't know anything about guys like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, Sam Walton, Thomas Watson, etc., then this might be OK to get start. But if you are familiar with them, then you've won't learn much here. I read to learn more about the ...

    I read the book because I was interested in the topic - learning about the most successful people in business over the last approx. 100 years. The writing and the way the book was organized was average. ...

    Learning how Ford and Rockefeller got their start is interesting, even if you think you?ve heard it all before. This profiles innovators in the late 19th century to show how their brilliant minds would still stack up today. Creativity and leadership never goes out of style. ...

    I enjoyed learning about the seven influential business figures presented in this book. Especially some of the figures you don't hear much about. Most know of Ford and Carnegie, but fewer know of Revson and Noyce. Nothing amazing, but well written and well done. ...

    Wonderful little stories about early 1900's business giants. Tedlow is a little turgid. ...

    A must-read book on entrepreneurial success stories for the knowledge worker or aspiring entrepreneur. ...

    i think this book basically its talk about management and how deal with ,and im still reading it ...

    Nothing informs more than history. When history is brought together under a focus, as Richard Tedlow does with this work of art, value expectation can never be too high. It's well crafted. ...

    Useful for perspective, but not truly informative. Somehow a gripping read, though, for non-fiction. ...

    Inspiring profiles of 7 great businessmen: Andrew Carnegie, Thomas J. Watson, George Eastman, Robert Noyce, Charles Revson, Sam Walton, and Henry Ford. The author is an HBS professor. ...
