I've recently become interested in the history of the ill-starred and short-lived Penn Central, and wondered what would be the best book to get? I found three on amazon:

'The Wreck of the Penn Central' by Joseph R. Daughen and Peter Binzen
'No Way to Run a Railroad: Untold Story of the Penn Central Crisis' by Stephen Salsbury
'The Fallen Colossus: The Great Crash of the Penn Central' by Robert Sobel

I might get all three, but can anyone recommend one of these titles in particular?
