    This book comes with an old timey feeling, as its writing has older words and a far different or slower flow than we are accustomed to today. Andrew Carnegie was certainly a very sophisticated and well-versed man, who became very able in literacy, history, business and politics. His writing easily conveys his unique voice, following his train of thought almost directly. However, his writing is formal, but it does not come with a very concise message or fluidity. He wrote this book to give information on his life, especially his rise from poverty to become one of the top business men in the world. It is written in first person, with small blurbs of third person descriptions of his family and colleagues. This is a pretty obvious Autobiography aimed to elaborate on the life of Carnegie from his own mind. Carnegie seems to be focused on telling anyone possible about his life, thus this book doesn't have an very direct audience.
    I really enjoyed reading about this man's life, as his story is one of inspiration for me. This book helped to reinforce and develop the knowledge I already had on him. I learned so much on his life and his rise from poverty, and I was thoroughly intrigued by his work ethic and morals. The people he spent time with were those of the top, presidents from the U.S. and various other countries, and many other famous folk, such as Mark Twain and Matthew Arnold. This man was not just business oriented, he also had focuses on diplomacy and philanthropy.
    The goal of this book seemed to be aptly accomplished by the end, I felt very informed on the details of his life. However, this book and its accounts did seem to be very biased and self-promotional, as it is with most autobiographies. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in history or business, as that is its main focus and origin.
