Andrew Carnegie was a Scottish immigrant who rose from humble roots to become one of the most powerful and wealthy businessmen in the United States, with a steel empire that dwarfed all its competitors. Highlighting Carnegie's determination to succeed, author Zachary Kent shows how Carnegie, after becoming one of the wealthiest men in the world, gave away most of his fortune to philanthropic causes, building libraries and such famous landmarks as Carnegie Hall in New York City.
