My Review on Making Money by John D. Rockefeller - Enjoy!
'I would rather earn one percent off one hundred people’s efforts than one hundred percent off my own efforts'
I’m not here to write a biography but I feel that it is essential to know the following information to understand how valuable the content in this book may be to you. For those of you who don’t know, John D. Rockefeller is the founder of the Standard Oil Company which later broke into Chevron, Exxonmobil, and others.
He is supposedly the wealthiest American of all time (if he was still alive today). He appears to have been a pious man with plenty of wisdom (and wealth) to spare which he did in this book.
Though titled John D. Rockefeller on Making Money he ventures on to tell us his views on dealing with people, religion, and charity. It’s a must read in my opinion if you have any affiliation with money which I believe the majority of humans do.
This work is quick to the point and has short segments, or paragraphs, that make up the entirety of the content. A few sentences really stood out to me and I’ve shared two of these few above and below.
A thing I really enjoy in books is when the fluff is cut out. Similar to The Way to Wealth by Benjamin Franklin this book had no “fluff” to lengthen it. Why read 1000 words when only 200 of them are going to prove to be beneficial to you?
It’s really only books written in modern times that contain all the unneeded words for whatever reason (I believe it’s to make the author’s work longer so it’ll appear to be filled with great content when really only a quarter of it is).
It took no more than 2 hours for me to complete the book and considering how reader-friendly it is it’s not a book that seems to dread on longer than it actually took.
In the end how much you’ll enjoy this book will depend on if you’d like to be learning about finances, economics, and the likes.'Save when you can and not when you have to.'Click To Tweet
