White Shoe: How a New Breed of Wall Street Lawyers Changed Big Business and the American Century by John Oller – Book Review

Tyler over at the Portly Politico sent me this recommendation. I read the review and it sounded interesting for you history buffs.  Here’s his message followed by the link to the original book review at the bottom of the post.
A buddy of mine wrote a great book review for his blog, Corporate History International, that I thought might be of interest to you.  It’s a review of John Oller’s White Shoe:  How a New Breed of Wall Street Lawyers Changed Big Business and the American Century.  He touches upon some of the historical parallels between the Progressive Era and our current times, albeit subtly.

Thanks for sharing, photog! Frederick is a strong writer, and his review really makes me interested in reading Oller’s book (apparently, Oller also has a book about Francis Marion, the “Swamp Fox” of the American Revolution, who is a local hero in my part of South Carolina–we even named a university after him).
Readers can check out more of Frederick’s writing at https://corporatehistory.international

Not yet, but Frederick’s review has me interested, and I have some Amazon gift cards burning a hole in my wallet, so I might have to pick it up, too. What’s on your stack at the moment?

Based on the descriptions I’ve read, it sounds hilarious. On your recommendation, I’ll check it out.
I just picked up a book on a whim about collectors stealing the skulls of geniuses. Sounds promising.
