    Titan is the first full-length biography based on unrestricted access to Rockefeller’s exceptionally rich trove of papers. A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded "the Octopus" by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America.

    If you could sum up Titan in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyed every minute


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Reason I selected the book in first place was the Grover Gardner, he brings the story to life.
