A journalist for thirty-five years, Mark Seal is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and the author of Wildflower: Inspired by this book to read about the real Rockefellers, I picked up Ron Chernow’s biography of the big man himself, John D.

He spends time in New York where he pretends to be a skilled stock broker.
