    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I bought this after it was recommended by a famous author on a podcast. I was disappointed and didn't even finish it.


    Has Titan turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Possibly. Just finished The Fish that Ate the Whale and it was awesome!


    What aspect of Grover Gardner’s performance would you have changed?

    The tempo is slow, but probably more the fault of the author, not his.


    Could you see Titan being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe video would make it bearable.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hoping I can get a refund!
