About the Author:

RON CHERNOW is the author of American best-seller Titan, and The Warburgs, which won the Eccles Prize as Best Business Book of 1993, and was selected by the American Library Association as one of that year's best non fiction books.

Review:

''As a portrait of finance, politics and the world of avarice and ambition on Wall Street, the book has the movement and tension of an epic novel. It is, quite simply, a tour de force.'' --—New York Times Book Review

''“As informative and entertaining a history, especially of the period from 1880 to 1930, as this reviewer has ever read . . . Nowhere has our tenuous financial system been better described than by Chernow.'' --Los Angeles Times Book Review

“ ''“An astonishingly detailed and fascinating story of the Morgan banks and the men who have run them. Chernow uses his gift for description to bring out vividly the personalities of his principals.'' --San Francisco Chronicle

“''Epic . . . Chernow melds deep insights into the life and times of Morgan bankers over 150 years with the flow of world history and the growth of banking and finance. With rich detail and warmth, he brings to life the defunct species of gentleman banker.'' --Chicago Tribune

''Chernow deftly mixes biography with economics and explicates arcane matters of high finance with sparkling clarity. . . . A fascinating historical journey from Charles Dickens' London to Tom Wolfe's New York.'' --Atlantic Monthly

''Packed with revelations, Chernow's mammoth history demystifies the inner workings of the secretive Morgan banking empire.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Chernow vividly portrays the influence that the Morgan banks have had on the history of the Western economy since the late eighteenth century . . . Superb history.'' --Library Journal (starred review)

''To a potentially dry and certainly difficult subject -- the influence of high finance on modern life -- Chernow brings a lively style and the endurance of a trouper.'' --Wall Street Journal

''A panoramic and well-researched look at the most powerful family of banks in America over the last century . . . Chernow has a supple, refined style.'' --Washington Post Book World

''A brilliant, generation-spanning history of the Morgan banking empire, which offers a wealth of social and political as well as economic perspectives.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
