Read full description of the books The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie and the Gospel of Wealth:Andrew Carnegie's autobiography takes us from his humble beginnings as a Scottish immigrant to his ascension to wealth and power as the 'captain of industry,' and how he embodied the American 'rags to riches' dream. Carnegie was the epitome of the self-made man, first working his way up in a telegraph company and then making astute investments in the railroad industry. Through hard work, perseverance, and an earnest desire to develop himself in his education and finances, Carnegie finally made his considerable fortune in steel. What is perhaps most remarkable about this historical figure, however, was his overwhelmingly generous practice of philanthropy. In "The Gospel of Wealth," he relates his ideas on the distribution of wealth to the poor in a responsible capitalistic society. In setting an example of his own beliefs, Carnegie gave away millions of dollars for the public good, demonstrating his own willingness to promote human welfare and the betterment of man.
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.
