THE FIRST TYCOON: THE EPIC LIFE OF CORNELIUS VANDERBILT tells of the founder of a dynasty who amassed a great fortune and became an American legend--but it goes beyond the usual casual review and offers the first complete biography of the man. From his childhood to the evolution of his pioneering vision and his revolutionary changes to standard business models, THE FIRST TYCOON is a pick any business library will want.
