    In the 30 years after the Civil War, the United States blew by Great Britain to become the greatest economic power in world history. That is a well-known period in history, when titans like Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and J. P. Morgan walked the earth. But as Charles R. Morris shows us, the platform for that spectacular growth spurt was built in the first half of the century. By the 1820s, America was already the world's most productive manufacturer and the most intensely commercialized society in history.

    Story

    The real problem is the narrator--hes very hard to listen to, drones, nasally, etc--although obviously narrator voice, diction and style is where personal preference and taste count most.

    Book is interesting enough although its not really 100% as advertised-the first part is a conventional history of one small subsection of the war of 1812 and doesnt really get directly to the heart of his theme but rather only at an angle to it
