Description

Historical revisionism that portrays malefactors of great wealth as heroic entrepreneurs. A biased, one-sided take on history. No academic credibility.

The Bookreader review provides a lot of good criticism based on other literature to show how one-sider the presentation is. Also, "A sad effort to justify greed and oppression."
