National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist De la fame, author of the award-winning book Alexander Hamilton is here the essential, to the captivating infinite biography of John DRockefeller, Sr. Jekyll and Hyde of American CapitalismDuring his nearly 98 years, Rockefeller has been known both as a baron robber bird of prey, whose Standard Oil Company makes total mockery of an industry, and as a philanthropist who has donated a wealth of money to universities and medical centres.He was the terror of his competitors, the whipping father of the reformers, the happiness of the cartoonists–and a real enigma.Drawing on an unprecedented access to Rockefeller, private documents, Chernow reconstructs his subjects in difficulty origins (his father is a crook and a bigamist) and his obstinate pursuit of wealth.But he reveals the profound religiosity that led him to “give everything I could”; his dedication to his father; and the sense of humour that made him the most colourful and colourful country in the world.Titan is a magnificent biography– balanced, revealing, elegantly written.
