Historian on the life of would-be president, Nelson Rockefeller
Book Lust with Nancy Pearl featuring Richard Norton Smith

Presidential historian Richard Norton Smith discusses his newest book, "On His Own Terms: A life of Nelson Rockefeller," a cradle-to-grave biography of the life of a would-be U.S. president. Smith took 14 years to write the book that draws from thousands of documents and over 200 interviews to capture Rockefeller's larger-than-life persona, creating a comprehensive and engrossing picture of the American icon who lived the life of a diplomat, bureaucrat, politician, businessman, art collector, real estate developer and was the charismatic face of liberal Republicanism.
