Conquering Gotham

Jill Jonnes - 2007

If you like railroads and are a student of leadership you will love this decade long story of how the Pennsylvania Railroad finally entered New Your City during the first decade of the twentieth century. It is about building tunnels under the Hudson River that  experts thought impossible and then building the largest train station in America. The book is filled with stories of both good and bad management and leadership committed to long term achievement. Much of it reads more like a novel than modern history.
