Why would a listener devote more than 34 hours to the history of a bank? Even with Robertson Dean's capable reading and eminently listenable voice, that's a long time—unless you have an interest in the American financial system and how it got to be the way it is. The House of Morgan and its components (some have changed since the book was written in 1990) dominated and sometimes shaped our economy for more than a hundred years. There are too many characters for Dean to make them all clearly distinguishable, but he keeps the story moving forward. There may be better sources for the biographies of the Morgan family, but this audiobook lays the groundwork for an understanding of modern finance.
