The volume provides a multi-dimensional portrait of the influential Gilded Age businessman, highlighting Flagler’s business ventures, methods and significant contributions to American economic history. Skillfully integrated into the work are passages that reveal much about his family, personality and style, motives and visions.

Henry M. Flagler (1830-1913), the ambitious Gilded Age tycoon who designed and built much of Florida's fashionable east coast, rode to success on the rails. As John D. Rockefeller's closest adviser in the 1870s, Flagler helped assemble the Standard Oil empire.

Great book on an intriguing personality. Anyone looking for a history lesson on the making of South Florida needs to read the book.

I love history and I had just taken a trip to St Augustine. I just had to find out more about the Flaglers. Wonderful book.

This book stresses the business aspects of Flagler's life, with much detail on his work with Standard Oil. The section on his years in Florida was of more interest to me, being a Florida resident. I would have liked more personal information about the man, however, although I recognize that it may not be available.

This book is not one that catches the reader attention from the beginning. You have to keep reading a d thirty minutes at a time is all I can take.

Good history book, especially if you live in Florida

Have not completed yet but ties in oil, economics, politics and big business at the turn of the 19th century. A "must read" for the serious economic history person.
