John Pearson. This biography of the oil tycoon who created the greatest fortune in America -- & came close to destroying his own family in the process -- is a fascinating saga of an extraordinary dynasty. Of Getty’s 4 sons who reached manhood, only one survived relatively unscathed. The unhappiness continued into the next generation, with the name Getty, as one journalist put it, ‘becoming synonymous for family dysfunction’. Pearson traces much of the family trouble to the bizarre character of the avaricious, sex-obsessed billionaire, J. Paul Getty himself -- & demonstrates how much of his behavior has been repeated in succeeding generations. Includes B&W photos.
