Fortune Builders

It was said that, &quote;Chicago has a beautiful sound because Chicago means money.&quote; The city's phonebook is the language of American business: Swift, Armour, Wilson, Pullman, MacArthur, Pritzker, Wrigley, Ward, Sears, Morton as in salt, Walgreen as in drugstore, Nielsen as in television ratings and McNally as in atlas. This is story of those famous Chicago families. Filled with dramatic success stories, fascinating anecdotes, and tasty morsels of social gossip, The Fortune Builders is a unique biography of Chicago's power brokers — the men and women who made Chicago what it is today.
