John D. Rockefeller on Making Money

A wealth of wisdom from the businessman, philanthropist, and richest American who ever lived.
John D. Rockefeller is still identified as the richest American in history, after adjusting for inflation. A businessman who made his wealth as a cofounder and leader of the Standard Oil Company, he also had a pivotal role in creating our modern system of philanthropy.
Collected in John D. Rockefeller on Making Money are the words of the man himself, offering advice on how to successfully start and manage a booming business, as well as the most efficient ways to preserve your wealth once you have acquired it. These quotes also cover:
Happiness in the face of great wealth
Money and its effects
Thoughts on facing public criticism
Thoughts on big business in the USA
Rockefeller also addresses the wisest and most conscientious manner of distributing and sharing your wealth when your wealth is overflowing. Finally, we get a glimpse into Rockefeller’s life with the inclusion of some of his most personal correspondence.
