You will be speaking better English, will have sought out Robert Burns' poetry just to feel some of what influenced this great man, and will begin taking yourself to account each day as the influence of true nobility begins to soak into your heart. Read it!
I always thought Carnegie a man distant from his workers, but if this book is to be believed I was quite wrong on this point.
I really enjoyed the first half of the book — Carnegie's rise to riches, but after he gives away most everything the book becomes a long exercise of name dropping. If it's not Mark Twain, it's President Teddy Roosevelt. Or the German Emperor.
I'd give the first half of this book 5 stars and the second half two stars.
The book is a treasure on life and experiences of a legend. His deep insights on business and his tactics on getting things done are useful even today. There is very little on his childhood and a lot on his business life. His business years that saw the Civil war, use of steel for the first time, bubble burst of 1873, etc. present a very interesting picture of the history of America.
A must read even for non-Americans (like me).
What is most interesting is that he wrote this autobiography in real-time (except for his early life), and his writing style was easy to read and I loved his sense of humor. All in all, a good read!
