Publisher's Summary

Andrew Carnegie was an immigrant, a poor boy who worked in a cotton mill, a man who amassed a great fortune as a steel baron and then became one of the most generous and influential philanthropists the world has ever known. His famous dictum, that he who dies rich dies disgraced, has inspired philanthropists and philanthropic enterprises for generations. During his own lifetime, he put his ideas into action by creating a family of organizations that continue to work toward improving the human condition, advancing international peace, strengthening democracy, and creating societal progress that benefits men, women, and children in the United States and around the globe.Here, in his own words, Mr. Carnegie tells the dramatic story of his life and career, outlining the principles that he lived by and that today serve as the pillars of modern philanthropy.

The narration ruined it!!

I was disappointed because the book is great and written in such simple, articulate and easy language, however the narration is horrible! It is the same tone all the way that eventually my mind drifts away and he doesn't finish the sentences right so one might find two different stories narrated as if they are one!

Why using such strong Scottish accent??

I see myself as pretty good at English (lived in Ireland 2 years and UK half year, although not native) but this accent made it difficult to follow. Never had this problem before... Useless and annoying...
Make sure you're native English before downloading this one if you don't want to reallllly have to focus
