Synopsis:
Critical Praise for Carnegie

"Seizing the mantle that J. F. Wall has held since 1970 as Andrew Carnegie’s definitive biographer, Peter Krass has written a superb new account of the legendary industrialist and philanthropist’s remarkable life."
–Barron’s

"An objective and readable portrait of a fascinating, conflicted man."
–Dallas Morning News

One of the major figures in American history, Andrew Carnegie was a ruthless businessman who made his fortune in the steel industry and ultimately gave most of it away.

In this compelling biography, Peter Krass reconstructs the complicated life of this titan who came to power in America’s Gilded Age, exploring the contradictions in the man who rose from lowly bobbin boy to build the largest and most profitable steel company in the world. Krass examines how Carnegie became one of the greatest philanthropists ever known–and earned a notorious reputation that history has yet to fully reconcile with his remarkable accomplishments.

Selected by Library Journal as one of the best business biographies of 2002

Book Description: Turner Publishing Company, United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 235 x 161 mm. Brand New Book. One of the major figures in American history, Andrew Carnegie was a ruthless businessman who made his fortune in the steel industry and ultimately gave most of it away. He used his wealth to ascend the world s political stage, influencing the presidencies of Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt. In retirement, Carnegie became an avid promoter of world peace, only to be crushed emotionally by World War I. In this compelling biography, Peter Krass reconstructs the complicated life of this titan who came to power in America s Gilded Age. He transports the reader to Carnegie s Pittsburgh, where hundreds of smoking furnaces belched smoke into the sky and the air was filled with acrid fumes . . . and mill workers worked seven-day weeks while Carnegie spent months traveling across Europe. Carnegie explores the contradictions in the life of the man who rose from lowly bobbin boy to build the largest and most profitable steel company in the world. Krass examines how Carnegie became one of the greatest philanthropists ever known-and earned a notorious reputation that history has yet to fully reconcile with his remarkable accomplishments.
