I wish I had read this book at age 20

I wish I had read this at age twenty. Very inspirational he shows what can be achieved with vision and application.
From humble beginnings and good moral guidance from his family Andrew Carnegie became one of the richest men in the world and a great philanthropist in his later years.
He worked hard, educated himself through reading good books and creating " Mastermind Groups" with his colleagues so they all advanced their positions in life. He cultivated the friendship of those who helped him advance his career, and his education. In later life his friends included President Theodore Roosevelt, Prime Minister Gladstone and writer Mark Twain.
He was a great organiser, leader and diplomat who engendered the loyalty of his employees.
It was he who tasked Napoleon Hill to research the Philosophy of Success.
