Description

His good friend Mark Twain dubbed him "St. Andrew." British Prime Minister William Gladstone called him an "example" for the wealthy. Such terms seldom apply to multimillionaires. But Andrew Carnegie was no run-of-the-mill steel magnate. At age 13 and full of dreams, he sailed from his native Dunfermline, Scotland, to America. The story of his success begins with a $1.20-a-week job at a bobbin factory. By the end of his life, he had amassed an unprecedented fortune - and given away more than 90 percent of it for the good of mankind.

Here, in one volume, are two impressive works by Andrew Carnegie himself: his autobiography and The Gospel of Wealth, a groundbreaking manifesto on the duty of the wealthy to give back to society all of their fortunes. And he practiced what he preached, erecting 1,600 libraries across the country, founding Carnegie Mellon University, building Carnegie Hall, and performing countless other acts of philanthropy because, as Carnegie wrote, "The man who dies thus rich dies disgraced."

Getting to know him

You hear off people , and based on hearsay you form and often time the wrong idea of the person. That was my case with Mr. Carnegie. All I remember was that he was an union buster, when in reality he was not even in the country, when the event happened, and was highly regarded by labor. I wanted to know about Mr. Andrew Carnegie, and came away meeting Andy. In the end I found that he was not more much different than me, and for his humanity I am grateful.

Inspirational Man

I liked the book and Mr. Carnegie's story. I thought the book was narrated well and it can easily be listened to at a faster pace without losing anything. I do think the book went into to details it did not need but overall it was well written.

Unheard words from a good man

I wish more people would listen to Andrew Carnegie's mild yet optimistic view on business and wealth. The book helps define Mr. Carnegie's drive, and the book also shows the ideals he wished for as he built his business. It's a good read but it's sadly dull at points, talking about monotony and personal relations.

Great Life Story of a Great Man

Great bio of the great Mr. Carnegie. Really enjoyed the Gospel of Wealth added to the end of this great book.

Only gripe is the volume of the narration made it difficult to hear when driving in a car or walking through the city.

Overall 4 Stars.

Relevant today

The power of work ethic and taking opportunities is demonstrated. Some little known history 1890-1915 is described by way of personal conversations on decision making and topics of the day. It seemed like 20 powerful men were making decisions for the world in many respects.

The Story of a Very Accomplished Man

I learned a lot in reading this book. For one, many of us don't pronounce Carnegie's last name correctly. But that was the least of it. This was a man who had very deep thoughts about wealth, the basis of work and industry, and how he believed management should treat its employees. Overall, I found the book fascinating and enjoyed hearing Carnegies theories of how the world works according to his world view. I left well informed and richer for the experience -- no pun intended.
