Book review-Being a Rockefeller

Last week I picked up Being a Rockefeller Becoming Myself. I have had a hard time with family dynamics lately and thought this might be a pleasant distraction and a reminder that every family has difficulties. It was an incredible book about the troubles any person has with developing your own identity and exploring the relationship you have with yourself as well as the relationship with your family. It’s tough to find yourself, add a famous last name and high expectations and you have a recipe for one stressed out kid. Eileen did a wonderful job of expressing her frustrations and how she was able to overcome these obstacles and create lasting adult relationships with her siblings. Every family has a different set of dynamics and while its easy to presume the rich have it easy this book is honest in sharing the troubles and triumphs of being a Rockefeller.
