Recensioner i media
"Imaginative, iconoclastic, immensely informative and mordantly funny." -- Glenn C. Altschuler - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "An acute analysis that in failure came success and in many ways the map of the nation." -- Scott Martelle - Washington Post "A scathing and wonderful new book. [Railroaded] will entertain and outrage readers." -- Buzzy Jackson - Boston Globe "A model of narrative skill and [an] insightful reinterpretation of the Gilded Age. It is easily the best business history I have read." -- Donald Worster - Slate "Required reading for anyone interested in the history of American railroading...This is an exciting story and well told." -- John Steele Gordon - Wall Street Journal
