Publisher's Summary

From the founders of the international health-care behemoth Johnson & Johnson in the late 1800s to the contemporary Johnsons of today, such as billionaire New York Jets owner Robert Wood "Woody" Johnson IV, all is revealed in this scrupulously researched, unauthorized biography by New York Times best-selling author Jerry Oppenheimer.

Often compared to the Kennedy clan because of the tragedies and scandals that had befallen both wealthy and powerful families, Crazy Rich, based on scores of exclusive, candid, on-the-record interviews, reveals how the dynasty's vast fortune was both intoxicating and toxic through the generations of a family that gave the world Band-Aids and Baby Oil

What the Critics Say

"Oppenheimer follows the clan of dysfunctional Band-Aid and baby-powder millionaires through the adulterous affairs, ugly divorces, drug and alcohol addictions, tragic accidents, suicide attempts, paternity disputes, will contests, and other turmoil as the family reaps the rewards of inheritance through privilege, opulence, and excess, for better and for worse." (Booklist Starred Review)

    Story
    "Terrible Narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I just enjoyed listening to Fortune's Children (about the Vanderbilts) and looked forward to this book. The story seems promising, but the narration was awful. The reader was completely unmodulated - everything was rapid and at an uncomfortable pitch - rather like a tv furniture store ad. I'm returning it - couldn't get more that 4 chapters in.


    What other book might you compare Crazy Rich to and why?

    Fortune's Children about the Vanderbilt family, in the subject matter.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

    Frankly, anyone.

    "Narrator sounds bored"

    The story is fascinating but the narrator sounds like he's jaded and bored which made it difficult for me to finish the whole book
