Below is one of the books I’ve read over the years which I’d like to share with my website’s visitors.

The book The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles, in the opinion of this reader, definitely deserves the Pulitzer Prize it won. Cornelius Vanderbilt built a transportation empire from a single sailboat (he was the one who innovated regular transport schedules) and is, along with Rockefeller, one of the iconic Americans of the late 19th Century.
