    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Andrew Carnegie the most enjoyable?

    The story was amazing I don't think the majority of people even know who he is and he was one of the most amazing men in History. He has affected life as we know it and made knowledge available to the rich and poor alike. I would have to say he is my favorite historical character. A most amazing man with vision !!


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He done a great job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it was long but I hated for it to end!!


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it , But it, But it you will not be disappointed!!

    President Bill Clinton's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It is the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written, and a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals.

    The Master-Key to Riches is the blueprint that Napoleon Hill placed in the hands of those who would teach and perfect his success methods. This revised edition has been updated for the 21st century to avoid arcane language or points of reference.
