Overview

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.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
