Being a Rockefeller,
By Eileen Rockefeller
One of the first Rockefeller woman to write a personal family memoir, Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself, Eileen Rockefeller gives readers a look inside one of the most important families in American history. As the youngest of six children and twenty-two cousins, Eileen learned early that great wealth and fame could open almost any door, but could not buy personal worth. Her intimate stories affirm how family and friendships shape us, whatever the circumstances of our birth, and create mirrors to becoming ourselves.
“Eileen Rockefeller has always sought the true, the real, the authentic. To read her beautiful book is to join her in a journey toward your own truth, your own real self, your own authenticity. What could be more important?” —TIMOTHY SHRIVER, Chairman and CEO, Special Olympics; Chairman, the Collaborative for Academic, Social & Emotional Learning (CASEL)
