How did John D. Rockefeller become the richest man in the world? He hated to lose money but enjoyed lavishly giving it away. He attracted strong independent men to his company, yet remained a family man who took pleasure in walking to work. It's difficult to imagine such an unorthodox and contradictory man achieving John D.'s incredible success. For this reason and more, his tale is fascinating.
