John D. Rockefeller, the wealthiest man of all time, amassed a fortune as he led the Standard Oil Company to an unprecedented position of power in the industrial markets. In addition to being a successful businessman, he was also a generous philanthropist. But somewhere between the money he earned and the money he gave away lies a mystery that remains unsolved. How could someone so generous have been so hated in his time? How could someone so successful have been so despised by the public, the press, and the government? Was Rockefeller a villain or a hero? The truth is that he was both.

In an era which saw American businessmen accrue unprecedented power and wealth by means of practices that would later be judged illegal by the Supreme Court, Rockefeller saw his opportunities as both a gift from God and a responsibility to the public, with a dash of Darwinian survival tactics thrown in for good measure. Today’s captains of industry may not use the same techniques that Rockefeller employed, but in many ways, the bold entrepreneurs who dominate the stock market and the headlines are apprentices to his ruthless genius.
