Description


John D. Rockefeller, Sr. makes it look easy to become a billionaire when you read this book. But, if you pay attention as you read this book, you will understand that he was still little more than a child when he thrust himself into the adult work world. He was so fast to catch on as to how to make money, and he never wavered in his thoughts on what he was taught as he grew up. His biblical teachings and his mother's never-ending faith in what she taught him about: "Make money, make it honestly, and you can give it wisely." He lived by this rule faithfully and never wavered from it. It seemed to hold for his entire life.

Inside you'll read about

  • John Davison Rockefeller, Sr. Gets His Start in the World
  • John D. Rockefeller, Sr. Takes A Wife
  • Standard Oil is Born
  • Ludlow Mining Disaster
  • There is Always That One Sibling

And much more

You will find some information about the Standard Oil Antitrust Suit against John D. Rockefeller's oil company but will also learn when you look at that over 100 years later, maybe that was only a "Myth." Face it, no matter where you turn today, there seem to be monopolies in business, and there are no antitrust suits brought against the dominant companies. It seems to be true that history always repeats itself. If that is so, why are we not drilling our oil and here in the United States and refining it here, so we are not dependent on other nations?
