When the product description says "This is an OCR edition with typos," it isn't lying.

I read about this book in a letter from a historian in the New York Times and immediately ordered it.

The kindle edition had several typos on the first two pages that made it impossible to determine the sense of the sentences containing them. Clearly no human reviewed even the first pages of this book.

I have read other old, out of print books on my kindle that were fine. This one, not so much. I had to go to google books to discover what the book really says. I mean to slog on through but clearly it's gonna be a hard task. I wish I could correct my own Kindle version as I go.

the typographical errors are rampant and the book is near impossible to read. Doesn't anyone review these before putting them up for sale? I will try to get my money back and, perhaps purchase the other volumes

The ebook was so poorly checked that I was unable to read it. Never-the-less, the book is worth more stars when/if legible.

The early history of the Standard Oil Trust and John D. Rockefeller's role in that vast, oppressive machine is detailed here by one of the great "muckrackers" of the 19th century. Fully foot-noted and relying heavily on testimony gleaned from innumerable public hearings, this book is impressive for it's clear, concise language and pointed relevence in today's world.
Witness the start of "Big Business," and watch as ordinary people get crushed by it. Read for yourself what kind of man Rockefeller really was, and how some of America's wealthiest families started out. Watch as the minions of Standard Oil rob, maim and even murder to advance their corporate goals. See how many of our most important freedoms were traded for corporate gain.
Then ask yourself...'is it happening again?
