Listened to the 19 CD's while driving--I find this the best way to get through some of these drier, lengthy tomes. The primary focus is on the lives and families of prominent Texas oil men, known in their day as the "Big Four", Roy Cullen, H. L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, and Sid Richardson. The author is a little heavy on politics, but this it was fun learning about what seems to be a broad reaching and nation shaping bit of history I was completely unaware of.

Very interesting for a Texas modern history buff and anyone looking for insight into oil, politics, and the sadness of some wealthy families.

Impressive, kept my interest despite the objectively stiff subject matter.
