Fascinating example of some Masters of Enterprise
What did you like best about this story?
Each chapter focuses on one of the greats of enterprise (from John Jacob Aster, Cornellius Vanderbilt, Ray Crock, Mary Kay, Bill Gates and others). It was fascinating to listen to their stories.
Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?
That's tough... a lot of them were very interesting
Any additional comments?
The only area of improvement would be to weave the stories together a bit more so that we can see how they relate to one another. For example, Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Carnegie have a story that can weave together nicely... and Morgan at a time.

Professor Brands books, impossible to put down!
This book is one I've listened to many times and had to buy several times because I've passed it around to friends and family and they keep it! If you enjoy history even the slightest, Professor Brands will keep you engaged 100% through whatever of his you are listening to or reading!
