    1. John Jacob Astor's role in American business history and the development of New York City is worthy of a Chernow/Nasaw level biographical research effort, but none seems to exist! This is the best I could find, but the writing is horrible, as the author makes himself way too familiar with his subject. Painful to read at times, and one gets the impression that we're missing key parts of the story. As with all the Astor biographies, there's too much on the fur trade and not nearly enough on how he [...]

    2. John Jacob Astor is one of the more intriguing characters I've come across in the early history of our nation. He was wealthy beyond understanding. His ethics were questionable, but his love for his family ran deep. The author's book is well-researched and brings up many points I found interesting about Astor, but I found the writing style rather dry.

    3. Relatively dry, but I have a personal interest in Astor for genealogical reasons so I found it interesting.

    4. When he was a boy, he depended in his abusive daddy and the help of some friends.With the years he left Germany and moved to England and from there to NY.The marriage with his wife Sarah in America changed his lifez she comes from a good family.Later making commerce with native Americans.His persistence and good sight for business was sucessul.He become a wealthy fur trader funding the American Fur Company and trading thoughth Europe and China.He was a financial genius when the fur trading was l [...]

    5. The author writes a number of short biographies like this. They are not rich enough to rival biographers like Maury Klein or Jean Strouse but they are informative. This books is about Astor and his career as one of the first American tycoons. He made his money buying and selling furs in the early 1800s and was perceptive enough to see the non-sustainability of the business, so he shifted his fortune out of the American Fur company and moved it into Manhattan real estate. History has shown that t [...]

    6. Became somewhat tedious, but gave enough detail about his fur trading, shipping and real estate to make it interesting.
