    Andrew Carnegie

    This is a great book. It tells about Andrew Carnegie's childhood in Scottland, his immigration to America, and his rise to industrial power. This probably one of the most amazing rags to riches story that I have ever read. Carnegie's story proves that anyone can reach the top if they put everything they have twords it.

    The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie is a beautiful book by itse

    The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie is a beautiful book by itself. It is a clear timeline of his life and times. A boy who's father is a weaver coming from a poor Scottish family. This is a story of a boy who made it to the richness of his own labor. A boy who became an iron magnate in the United States and donated two thousand libraries or so I n his lifetime. Ndrew Carnegie is one of the very few men of his kind in this century who worked hard so that others or everybody might enjoy the fruits of his labor. I am recommending this book to all biography lovers!!!

    In addition to the flowery writing of the day, Mr. Carnegie's overblown sense of self importance makes this virtually unreadable. While his ego no doubt served him well in his lifetime, a biography of Andrew Carnegie, written by an impartial author, is what I am now seeking.

    Pleasantly surprised

    I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the book and learned from it.

    Andrew Carnegie was a very good writer and did an ok job with the book.

    There were some sections which had a bit too much self boasting about donating millions to one charity or another or having the ear of one politician or another and singlehandedly convincing them on a course of action which assuredly avoided a global catastrophe... just listing them down almost in an attempt to garner admiration from readers.

    But overall, it was informative and a pretty good read.
