Summary
Andrew Carnegie was an immigrant, a poor boy who worked in a cotton mill, a man who amassed a great fortune as a steel baron and then became one of the most generous and influential philanthropists the world has ever known. His famous dictum, that he who dies rich dies disgraced, has inspired philanthropists and philanthropic enterprises for generations. During his own lifetime, he put his ideas into action by creating a family of organizations that continue to work toward improving the human condition, advancing international peace, strengthening democracy, and creating societal progress that benefits men, women, and children in the United States and around the globe.Here, in his own words, Mr. Carnegie tells the dramatic story of his life and career, outlining the principles that he lived by and that today serve as the pillars of modern philanthropy.

A fascinating, insightful and inspiring listen.I discovered the Andrew Carnegie far beyond the one-dimensional figure that used to come to mind when I heard his name. An impressive yet down-to-earth man with an easy, honest and direct manner, equally comfortable with working people , businessmen and heads of state. He loves his hometown in Scotland, his adopted hometown of Pittsburg, and yet also savors world travel. I loved hearing his "good sense" comments on so many different topics and in so many different venues. The narration is done w/ a Scotsman's accent. Some words were hard to understand, but I readily became comfortable with it--and it helped capture the author and his world.

Amazing! I love that the autobiographical accounts of Americas first and arguably most impactful minds of the industrial era are available to listen to. Being an entrepreneur myself, 100 years after men like Carnegie, I find myself searching for genuine mentorship and finding it in many of the biographies of people who lived in a much different time. It feels like I am having conversations with them which without the ability to listen to them in this way, I would not be able to learn from them at the very time. I can use the knowledge to make a difference for my own clients. Also, this narrator is great! Thank you.
