The book is okay…true but had to listen in many segments…
The book was great. But the narration was very difficult to understand
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.
