Read full description of the books:
Born the son of a handloom weaver in Scotland, Andrew Carnegie was a man ahead of his time whose journey from humble beginnings to the richest man in the world has inspired generations of entrepreneurs and philanthropists to follow in his footsteps. After emigrating with his family to America whilst still a boy, he rose from bobbin boy in a factory in Pittsburgh to telegraphy messenger, railroad employee, bridge builder, bond trader, to iron and steel manufacturer until upon his retirement he dedicated himself to giving away his wealth to the trusts, foundations, and institutions which still continue today to work to his guiding principle to 'help those who help themselves.'
In his won words this engaging book paints a vivid picture of his boyhood in Dunfermline, his teenage years in Pittsburgh and ultimately his establishment of a new kind of worldwide philanthropy.

Read information about the authorAndrew Carnegie was a Scottish American industrialist who led the enormous expansion of the American steel industry in the late 19th century. He built a leadership role as a philanthropist for America and the British Empire. During the last 18 years of his life, he gave away to charities, foundations, and universities about $350 million (in 2011, $225 billion) – almost 90 percent of his fortune. His 1889 article proclaiming "The Gospel of Wealth" called on the rich to use their wealth to improve society, and it stimulated a wave of philanthropy.
