I bought this truly amazing book on Andrew W. Mellon at a garage sale for a quarter.
It is literally the best business biography I have ever read. This contemporaneously written book about the living (and then happening) exploits of one of the world's richest men from 1933 is even better on Mellon than MELLON: AN AMERICAN LIFE by author David Cannadine which itself is a tremendous and much celebrated work.
Amazon sells the book I found for $25 or more depending on condition. I got a real bargain not on the price but especially on the content.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BOOK.
