"Here is David Rockefeller at the top of his emotional register.... As this calm yet revealing memoir indicates, there never will be another person like David Rockefeller." —The New York Times Book Review
Born into one of the wealthiest families in America—he was the youngest son of Standard Oil scion John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and the celebrated patron of modern art Abby Aldrich Rockefeller—David Rockefeller has carried his birthright into a distinguished life of his own. His dealings with world leaders from Zhou Enlai and Mikhail Gorbachev to Anwar Sadat and Ariel Sharon, his service to every American president since Eisenhower, his remarkable world travels and personal dedication to his home city of New York—here, the first time a Rockefeller has told his own story, is an account of a truly rich life.
"[Rockefeller's] book... is an account of a decent, hardworking man who ran his company, Chase bank, with an eye to the public good.... If Rockefeller, by virtue of his name, is one of the poster boys of capitalism, he offers a pretty attractive face." —Newsweek
"David Rockefeller is an emblematic figure of a world that no longer really exists. .. and there's something refreshingly nineteenth-century about this entertaining memoir as well. Rockefeller's style is restrained and self-deprecating." —The New Yorker
"A compelling story of money, philanthropy, culture, and politics." —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
