Unique for its breadth of coverage and depth of analysis this uncommonly readable book is certain to become a classic. Five of the book's ten chapters provide in-depth analyses of representative companies and the remarkable people who led them. These firms include McDonald's, Procter & Gamble, Boeing, General Motors, and Ford-all of which began as entrepreneurial startups and grew to become big businesses. Their success stories are counterbalanced by a detailed dissection of the monumental failure of RCA, long the world leader in consumer electronics but today all but extinct.

Interspersed with the company-centered chapters are five brief "overview" chapters: one each on women and African Americans in business, and three on vital sectors of American business: first finance, then chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and, most recently, computers, Silicon Valley, and the Internet.

With 35 photographs and a comprehensive bibliographic essay, this compact, enjoyable work will be highly appreciated by anyone interested in how American business powered the twentieth century.

If you are looking for a reference, look elsewhere. However, if you want an introductory lesson on the making of modern American business, this is just the right book for you. It roughly outlined some of the most prominent American companies (Proctor & Gamble, and McDonald). The book is narrated in a mostly objective and linear perspective, categorized by topics. I would recommend anyone to read this book, not just business students, but everyone who's interested in business.

In addition, I found it interesting to see how certain themes persist through time proving that history does repeat itself. The book is a very quick read and provides the reader with enough information on each era. After that, the reader can use the suggested reading list to learn more about the subjects, eras and people that might interest him/her. Overall, a great read.

A post-Chandlerian account of American history.
Very informative. Much of the oral history and anecdotes that I have come across over the years are systematised by McCraw.
