Product description

Review

“The definitive work on Carnegie for the foreseeable future, and it fully deserves to be."—John Steele Gordon, The New York Times

“Never has this story been told so thoroughly or so well as David Nasaw tells it in this massive and monumental biography."—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

“Beautifully crafted and fun to read."—Louis Galambos, The Wall Street Journal

“The definitive Carnegie biography has arrived."—USA Today

“Nasaw delivers a vivid history of nineteenth-century capitalism."—Fortune

“Nasaw’s fine book…seems sure to be the final word on ‘the Star-spangled Scotchman.’”Los Angeles Times
 
“Nasaw’s research is extraordinary.”San Francisco Chronicle
 
“A meticulous account of a paradoxical American original.”BusinessWeek
 
“Make no mistake: David Nasaw has produced the most thorough, accurate and authoritative biography of Carnegie to date.”Salon.com
 
 “Nasaw’s…very well-written biography is timely and instructive…Nasaw does brilliant work in bringing [Carnegie] to life.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“A comprehensive and often engrossing biography…compelling.”Booklist  

“In this lucid, meticulous, and finely detailed biography, David Nasaw has delivered the authoritative volume on Andrew Carnegie that we have long awaited. He captures in persuasive fashion the many sides of this energetic and kaleidoscopic personality—the abrasive industrialist, the enlightened philanthropist, the aspiring, often infuriatingly self-deluded author and political polemicist—and thereby makes a valuable contribution to the rich literature of America in the Gilded Age.”—Ron Chernow, author of Alexander Hamilton
