Book Description

Andrew Carnegie led an extraordinary life. He was the very embodiment of the American dream - a Scottish immigrant who fled the grinding poverty of his native land to start anew in America. He became the wealthiest man in the world, then, at the end of his life, gave it all away. He thought of himself as labor's greatest champion; in time, labor thought of him as their most detested enemy. This short-form book shares his extraordinary story.

1.0 out of 5 stars what does short-form mean? May 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Turns out, it means shorter-than-a-comic-book. Worthless. A joke. Would not have borrowed this if it was clear what it was.

I can't remember when I felt as cheated as when I finished this e-book. The book doesn't tell very much more than you would find in many dictionarys. Do not buy this book.
