Book Description

Theodore Dreiser presents a dynamic account of an unprincipled financial tycoon, Frank Cowperwood, who has an exceptional ability to manipulate funds that allow businesses to function and to thrive. He learned this from his father who worked in Philadelphia where Cowperwood's resourcefulness lifted his family above their modest beginnings to a more distinguished social environment. He was always surrounded by those who knew how money worked and understood how corporations operated. He labored hard and was convinced of his ultimate success. He trusted his intuition and used money to recompense his desire for a grand lifestyle by moving his business to Chicago. After the 1871 Chicago fire, a newspaper article hinted at the instability of financial obligations so that other businessmen demanded Cowperwood return their investments immediately. He used several exclusive methods to protect his assets and avoid bankruptcy but was finally accused of stealing. He was convicted and thrown in jail and handled his bad fortune by not losing hope. When he was released, he started a new life of achievement and affluence. His tenacity and focus made him one of the most authoritative people in the United States, and his advice on many financial topics was sought. This rise/fall/rise tale illustrates the ability of these fearless men to bring dreams into vivid reality.
