I didn’t expect culture shock when I moved to Oxford, England in 2013. I spoke English, after all. I come from an ex-British colony. How different could things really be across the pond?

John Jacob Aster broke just about every rule and law there was surrounding trade. He was opportunistic, cutthroat, and an incorrigible flirt. And it made him rich.
