First half was great! Second half got borring
First half is about how he got started in the steel industry. Second half just talks about how he gave away all his money. To me, I could have done without the second half as I was reading for business insight.

A Remarkable Life Story
Would you listen to The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie & The Gospel of Wealth again? Why?
Yes...The entire life of Andrew Carnegie turned out to be quite intriguing. From coming to America and working in a factory to eventually becoming a steel tycoon, and achieving the accomplishments he did in life, to the unselfish acts and legacy he left behind made this book a real pleasure to listen to.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie & The Gospel of Wealth?
The fact that he donated much of his wealth towards helping humanity and building libraries in the latter part of his life was simply amazing.
What does David McCallion bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
David McCallion did this book great justice. His Scottish accent added a great touch to the narration. His character voices were also a nice touch, along with a pace that kept your interest the entire way.
