This thorough, long, and orderly history of the Rothschild banking dynasty is a deeply traditional business history text. It's full of coherent details, narrated clearly. There are thousands of footnotes, and a huge bibliography. As reference material, I'm sure it's flawless. It's obvious that the author accomplished his goal. But I wished for one meal described, one suit of clothes worn, one grand (or not-so-grand) apartment described. Alas, none of this is included in this story. Pitifully few tidbits flesh out this text. It's business history set against a background of world history, but neither the motivations nor the humanness of the Rothschilds is part of the picture. Ultimately, it disappoints.

After reading the numerous glowing reviews I thought I would enter a story about a fascinating family during a turbulent period in history. Instead I felt as though I was reading a financial piece. Too much detail. I kept looking for the book to breakout and read like the reviews.It is rare that I do not finish a book but after 220 pages I gave up.

The last two chapters of this book zing along like the first part, "Money's Prophets." That volume was fascinating for the way it made financial history a story of personalities and social trends. This volume gets bogged down in the middle in British political history. You learn in excruciating detail about the Rothschild's involvement with Liberal and Tory politicians. But their social role gets buried.

The book had many facts and details that broke up the pace of the book for me. The author appears to be the first writer who has gained access to much of the Rothchild's historical records. He then has so many facts that any future writer of this family will have to footnote him till their big toe hurts. I have found Ron Chernow books well documented and that they read like a novel rather than a High School text book.
