    1. The book is a collection of biopics of seven of the greatest visionaries who transformed American industry and/or retail, these being Andrew Carnegie (steel magnate), George Eastman (Kodak), Henry Ford (Ford Motors), Thomas J Watson Senior (IBM), Charles Revson (Revlon), Sam Walton (Walmart) and Robert Noyce (Intel & inventor of the silicon chip). The author argues, quite convincingly, that most people 'march backward into the future' whereas these innovators either adapted to or created a w [...]


    2. I read more than half of it over Christmas, when I had time. I loved the perspective: 7 Americans who changed industries, and therefore America and then world. It's honest as to why it's all White men: they had the privileged access in those times and places. It examines their innovation as uniquely American and analyzes how their business decisions were reflections of their personal backgrounds. Very enlightening. It can be uneven in its style sometimes, especially as the author at the end trie [...]



    3. If you've never red a business history book and don't know anything about guys like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, Sam Walton, Thomas Watson, etc then this might be OK to get start. But if you are familiar with them, then you've won't learn much here.I read to learn more about the careers of George Eastman, Carles Revson, and Robert Noyce. But there are better, more detailed books out there on these businessmen.A survey, mainly.


    4. I read the book because I was interested in the topic - learning about the most successful people in business over the last approx. 100 years. The writing and the way the book was organized was average.


    5. Learning how Ford and Rockefeller got their start is interesting, even if you think you’ve heard it all before. This profiles innovators in the late 19th century to show how their brilliant minds would still stack up today. Creativity and leadership never goes out of style.


    6. I enjoyed learning about the seven influential business figures presented in this book. Especially some of the figures you don't hear much about. Most know of Ford and Carnegie, but fewer know of Revson and Noyce. Nothing amazing, but well written and well done.





    7. Nothing informs more than history. When history is brought together under a focus, as Richard Tedlow does with this work of art, value expectation can never be too high. It's well crafted.



    8. Inspiring profiles of 7 great businessmen: Andrew Carnegie, Thomas J. Watson, George Eastman, Robert Noyce, Charles Revson, Sam Walton, and Henry Ford. The author is an HBS professor.
