Overview
Now reissued, this lively autobiography of J.Paul introduces the famed tycoon to a new generation of readers and comes close to re-creating the essence of the man himself. Known largely for his wealth, Getty was highly educated, competent in six languages a world traveler, and a committed collector of art. Wheather describing how he amassed his staggering fortune discussing the prospects of democracy listing the seven key points success-oriented men should know about women or recounting undergraduate conversions at Oxford with his good friend "David" the future king edward of england Getty is never less than fascinating. The cast of Characters who populate his intimate anecodotes reads like a who's who of the twentienth century: Winston Churchill Nelson Rockdffeller, Bela Lugosi, Jacqueline Onassis, Richard Nixon, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Charlie Chaplin, and hundreds more . He discusses with absolute frankness his several marriages and liasions and speaks honestly about his notorious stinginess and the often bizarre problems confronted by the impossibly wealthy. Richly detailed and immensely enjoyable, As I See It recounts the life of an American Legend and the founder of the museum that bears his name.
