This is a good collection of short biographies. The heroes are portrayed as clever and hard-working. As a defense of capitalism, this is an abysmal failure. The author obviously doesn't understand the moral underpinnings of capitalism. His tries paint all of the businessmen with the brush of his christian morality. He writes an entire chapter on how these men were serving the people, despite obvious evidence to the contrary (Dow's actions and motivations are completely selfish). Kellogg should never have been included. He is no hero -- he peddles a diet based on divine inspiration. What a joke! ( )
