One sided opinion and way too positive

This was a disappointment. The book was written by an ex-employee almost 100 years ago. It was written to flatter Mr. Heinz and present him in a positive light as a man who did nothing wrong. I was hoping to experience a more balanced biography that showed how he built his business that includes the positive and negative. I have read biographies on Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Astor...and they all have seedy, cut throat aspects to how they conduct business which helped them rise to power. However, this biography painted Henry Heinz in a 100% positive light...and barely scratched the surface of his business operations.

This is a story that should be told in all schools

Hardwork, simplicity and true care for others is the pattern for sucess in life. Henry lived to be an Exemple to people of how we should live.
