Anderson Cooper's familiar voice and delivery style are ever present in this historical account of the Vanderbilt dynasty. The history is comprehensive, but Cooper provides color and enthusiasm with every intriguing story. He breathes life into the story of how his great-great-great grandfather, "the Commodore," built enormous wealth through railroad and shipping enterprises. Cooper expresses his fascination with how his family's wealth and extravagant spending helped define the Gilded Age in America. In his magnetic style, Cooper keeps listeners engaged with provocative tales portraying the Commodore's rise to high society and the tragic repercussions that occurred as ancestors zealously frittered away that empire.
