    " I don't generally like biographies, but I loved this one and highly recommend it. Probably because I really like hearing how people got rich. "

    " Wow. An amazing biography of one the most influential unknowns in American history and our economy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brock | 8/17/2012

    " Interesting read about a time that I knew very little about. Tammany Hall, Boss Tweed, Black Friday (1869 panic, not the day after thanksgiving), Vanderbilt, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 4/30/2012

    " Kind of an apologetic bio interspersed with lots of "sharp" dealing and political payoffs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 11/2/2011

    " Good introduction to Jay Gould, whose exploits make Enron and the other recent scandals seem tame. I'd have liked more information on exactly how Gould attained his initial wealth at the beginning of his career, as he started from almost nothing. An enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 10/10/2011

    " A very well written account of the life of Jay Gould, one of the world's first robber barons. "
