“Makes a reader feel like a time traveler plopped down among men who were by turns vicious and visionary.”—The Christian Science MonitorThe modern American economy was the creation of four men: Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould, and J. P. Morgan. They were the giants of the Gilded Age, a moment of riotous growth that established America as the richest, most inventive, and most productive country on the planet. Acclaimed author Charles R. Morris vividly brings the men and their times to life. The ruthlessly competitive Carnegie, the imperial Rockefeller, and the provocateur Gould were obsessed with progress, experiment, and speed. They were balanced by Morgan, the gentleman businessman, who fought, instead, for a global trust in American business. Through their antagonism and their verve, they built an industrial behemoth—and a country of middle-class consumers. The Tycoons tells the incredible story of how these four determined men wrenched the economy into the modern age, inventing a nation of full economic participation that could not have been imagined only a few decades earlier.

the American Supereconomy.

the American Supereconomy. Carnegie, Rockefeller, Gould, and Morgan would have been dominant figures anywhere, but few places have ever been as open to people of talent as post–Civil War America; and in America, no field offered opportunities as unlimited as business. America’s radically different manufacturing culture, its cult of the innovative entrepreneur, its obsession with getting ahead even on the part of ordinary people, its enthusiasm for the new-the new tool, the new consumer product-were all unique.

Charles Morris’s The Tycoons gives a good account of how the 19th century tycoon came into power. Charles Morris has a different view of the entrepreneur Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Jay Gould and J.P. Morgan, and gives supporting facts about each entrepreneur’s character.
The opening is a bit surprising because Morris does not mention the four characters that are in the subtitle. The book starts with the United States surpasses Britain in the world economy by mechanization and automation. The story of the tycoons begins in chapter three and does not have any connection to the first two chapters. Some chapters stray away from the four tycoons, but are still very interesting. The title of the book should be different because Morris writes about more than just the 19th century tycoon. This is not an easy read, and some of the analogies are out of place and do not make any sense. Overall Morris’s The Tycoons gives interesting history of how the United States because a world economic super power.

The thing that makes this book especially useful is that the author weaves their stories into a general analysis of the dramatic changes that took place in the US economy, particularly in the second half of the 19th century. After the Civil War the US became a leading manufacturer, surpassing anything to be found in Europe, and these men had important roles in this process. Three of the four came from humble origins, while JP Morgan's father had already become an importasnt figure in the banking industry. Jay Gould, who was primarily a railroad man, was able to outsmart Cornelius Vanderbilt, the US' first tycoon and not covered in the book,, at times when the latter was being helped by Morgan. These are key players in forming the United States into what it became in the 20th century. A very interesting read!!

This was an excellent book. I really liked it because it put so many things into perspective, what was happening at the same time globally and how what these guys did really impacted the globe, not just the US. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a detail and global impact to get the broader picture.

This is a very interesting book full of meaningful facts and interesting anecdotes,unfortunately the organization of presentation is less than would be ideal.There are ,for example too many instances where you have an understanding of a situation that could have been possible earlier in the narrative had the information been related in a more suitable sequence.Overall I liked the book and feel it gave me a good overview of the subjects.

I loved this book. Very well researched. Combines major economic trends from the time, technological innovation that sprung from American culture and how these affected the lives of the tycoons while their life interconnected each other.

Superb work. Very well written.

I purchased the book, The Tycoons, because I have been fascinated with each of the 4 detailed in this surprisingly interesting book. The author goes into great detail how each worked his magic, but the really interesting part for me is that he thoroughly paints for the reader all of the small details of that period that made the advancement of the 4 possible. His descriptions of the background information is so very thorough and is an easy read with much substance. Interestingly, comparisons of then and now are very real and make the time of the tycoons quite a contrast with our current political and economic environment. I have read the extensive histories of Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and others. This book puts them in a context that is very understandable. A very surprising and enjoyable read. I'm even getting my wife to consider the read even tho she's not so much a history buff.

This book is about 3 famous Americans who helped transform the US from an agrarian society to a manufacturing society. It gives a biography of each as well as a look at their areas of business. My only complaint was the author tended to over explore areas related to the business, such as labor unions and beginning of the middle class. It tended to go too far away from Carnegie, Rockefeller and Morgan.
