From Men’s Journal:

Kevin Kosar, senior fellow at the R Street Institute think tank and author of Whiskey: A Global History, says it’s a difficult task to accurately tell business stories as Times reporter Clay Risen did.

“I was delighted that Risen did what should have been done a long time ago and get past the old-fashioned business history narrative. It’s a difficult history to write because businesses are private and can control their own records and tell their own stories.”

Because of that, Kosar says, American businesses often spin a “great man model” about visionaries who started companies.
