Random Reminiscences of Men and Events | [John D. Rockefeller]

Random Reminiscences of Men and Events

John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937) founded the Standard Oil Company, revolutionized the oil business and, after adjusting for inflation, may have been the richest person in world history. Rockefeller's business practices were fiercely condemned, but he and Standard Oil had a policy of not responding to the attacks of critics. Random Reminiscences of Men and Events (1909) is in part a personal memoir, in part a response to his critics, and in part a book of advice on making money and philanthropy.

    Nothing.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Random Reminiscences of Men and Events?

    "Just average."

    The book was just average. I learned very little about JDR that I thought was unique or insightful.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought this wasn't going to be beneficial or instructive, maybe entertaining at best. I was pleasantly surprised however. This book proved to be very instructive and gave me a lot of insight in to what made Rockefeller as successful as he was.
