By David Dary, Oklahoma Publishing Co., 2003, in print.

Review: Realize that this is a tribute book, and not a history of the family-owned company that owns The Oklahoman and played a key role in shaping Oklahoma City and Oklahoma's direction, and also helped shape the music scene in Nashville, and this won't be a big disappointment. This book is well documented and researched, lots of great photos, and good details about OPUBCO founder E.K. Gaylord. But if you're looking for a full history, this book is a disappointment. I suggest pairing this book up with "Me and My Big Mouth" by Walter Harrison, and you'll get closer to learning more about the OPUBCO empire and the Gaylord dynasty.
