I can't resist copying one of the pre-publication reviews of Rudy's book:
"Mr. Garbely has done an amazing piece of original research. . . . He did a magnificent job in both the conception and execution of this paper. . . . So few students are interested in business and corporate history, and Mr. Garbely is exceptionally talented at it." - Dr. Richard Saunders, Jr., professor of history at Clemson University and author of Merging Lines: American Railroads, 1900-1970 and Main Lines: Rebirth of the North American Railroads, 1970–2002
This is high praise indeed-- Dr. Saunders' two books are among the best I have ever read on the subject... and if he thinks that Rudy did a great job, I am very sure he did!
Best of luck with the book. Spread the word!
