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.

""Random Reminiscences" is a great title."
Story, or any good stories in general.
Write more about how he got where he was, more personal stories.
The part where John recounts his interaction with this widow that feels she was unjustly robbed in a sale. John, attempts (and succeeds) at showing HE was in the right.
The book was just average. I learned very little about JDR that I thought was unique or insightful.
"Freaking awesome. Definitely read."
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.
