Great Fortune: The Epic of Rockefeller Center

Daniel Okrent

Publisher: Penguin BooksFormat: Paperback

In this hugely appealing book, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, acclaimed author and journalist Daniel Okrent weaves together themes of money, politics, art, architecture, business, and society to tell the story of the majestic suite of buildings that came to dominate the heart of midtown Manhattan and with it, for a time, the heart of the world. At the center of Okrent's riveting story are four remarkable individuals?tycoon John D. Rockefeller, his ambitious son Nelson Rockefeller, real estate genius John R. Todd, and visionary skyscraper architect Raymond Hood. In the tradition of David McCullough's “The Great Bridge,” Ron Chernow's “Titan,” and Robert Caro's “The Power Broker, Great Fortune” is a stunning tribute to an American landmark that captures the heart and spirit of New York at its apotheosis.
