Críticas:

[Langdon] was a remarkable man and we are fortunate to have this interesting biography. January 2009 * www.bookviews.com * Roger Grant's biography is well written, and tells us not only about his work as a railroader, but as a child, student, and family man. Importantly, the details of Langdon's tenure at B&O, Rock Island, and Penn Central add insight into the histories of those railroads.Spring-Summer 2009 * Railroad History * . . . succeeds handsomely in telling the story of an important railroad personage.October 5, 2008 -- Frederick N. Rasmussen * The Baltimore Sun * . . . this is a book for any railroader . . . or anyone else interested in the life of a raliroad executive who truly loves trains.October 2008 -- Rush Loving Jr. * RABO News & Notes * Eminently readable, Visionary Railroader is both well written and well organized. April 1, 2009 * Civil Engineering * Visionary Railroader is an enjoyable account of a fascinating individual. . . . Grant's work might be just the ticket for understanding the convoluted evolution of the twentieth-century railroad industry. 84.1, Spring 2010 * Business History Review * [T]his book will provide a valuable guide to future scholars studying the history of railroad management, coporate strategy, and regulation. January 2010, Vol. 51 * Technology and Culture *

Reseña del editor:

Visionary Railroader chronicles the life of a key figure in the history of rail travel in the United States. As president of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, Jervis Langdon Jr. had the opportunity to put progressive concepts into practice.

In 1964, Langdon took charge of the Rock Island, and by the time he left in 1970, he had spearheaded major improvements for this struggling carrier. The same year, he became lead trustee for the bankrupt Penn Central and three years later assumed the presidency. From his role in passing the Regional Rail Reorganization Act of 1973 to his work on creating the quasi-public Conrail, Visionary Railroader examines the impact of Langdon's active life with clear text, unique representations of media of the day, and select family photos.
