Customer Review

on 9 September 2009
Took the book on holiday and read it quickly. Great of example of perseverance and tenacity and intetresting example of the different attitude to enterprise in the UK and USA. Frederick Tudor was actually in prison for unpaid debts for a while but made good eventually and one wonders if he would have "made it" in the UK if that had happened to him here. At times not the nicest chap who in his old age when he was rich and successful, did not remember some of closest friends who kept going in the early days. Married late in life but his wife who was 30 years younger than him, complained that he was too demanding! Would it work now with global warming and ice to Calcutta? a trade which lasted 25 years after commercial refrigeration was available?
Interesting example of how quickly we forget.
