    Story
    (123)

    The Scottish-born son of a failed weaver and a mother who supported the family by binding shoes, Andrew Carnegie was the embodiment of the American dream. In his rise from a job as a bobbin boy in a cotton factory to being the richest man in the world, he was single-minded, relentless and a major player in some of the most violent and notorious labor strikes of the time. The prototype of today's billionaire, he was a visionary in the way he earned his money and in the way he gave it away.

    Peggie says: "Andrew Carnegie"
    "Missing Important & Historic Detail."
    Overall

    The author David Nasaw does a fair job portraying Carnegie;.But He Forgot a very important and historic quantum leap detail.

    In the end, this book, although very long, is well written, so that the pages fly quickly.

    Carnegie enlisted Napoleon Hill to interview 500 millionaires to obtain the Magic Formula of Success with out pay and took Hill's over 20 years to accomplish this work, but the author did not include any reference about this important historic event, I guess I got really discouraged and will not recommend this book.
