The Gospel of Wealth Essays and Other Writings

By Andrew Carnegie
Words of wisdom from American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie
Focusing on Carnegie's most famous essay, "The Gospel of Wealth," this book of his writings, published here together for the first time, demonstrates the late steel magnate's beliefs on wealth, poverty, the public good, and capitalism. Carnegie's commitment to ensuring and promoting the welfare of his fellow human beings through philanthropic deeds ranged from donations to universities and museums to establishing more than 2,500 public libraries in the English-speaking world, and he gave away more than $350 million toward those efforts during his lifetime. "The Gospel of Wealth" is an eloquent testament to the importance of charitable giving for the public good.
