Henry J. Kaiser is a prime example of such a man, a consummate salesman and visionary who built some of the world's largest dams, thousands of ships, millions of automobiles, hotels, aluminum plants, even cities, and provided his employees with health care that is known today as Kaiser Permanente, one of the nation's largest health providers. Award-winning author and syndicated columnist Daniel Alef, who has written more than 300 biographical profiles of America's greatest tycoons, brings out the story of Henry J. Kaiser and his remarkable life.

It was read a little too quickly, and not much enthusiasm.
