    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Nice performance, very good language, but the story itself... well, it could have been a better drama for such a cornerstone of the American history.

  • The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives

    Story
    (1425)

    In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance.

    Story

    If I had this book in my college time, I could have easily opted for math and probability theory, instead of Economics and languages! Beautifully written and nicely narrated story, by a man, who can easily explain his subject after three pints of beer to his dog and she'd understand him... which means: he knows the matter from the bottom of his heart and loves it. And, yes, this is the only book I've seen, fully devoted to math without a single formula in it, which I find just great!
