Whereas Benjamin Franklin, Joseph Priestly, William Watson and John Ro James Watt by Andrew Carnegie was a very good book about a very interesting man. If someone would have asked me about James Watt I would have said that he developed the steam engine and had something to do with lighting (as his name is one almost every traditional light bulb).

James Watt was a Scotsman. Andrew Carnegie was a proud Scotsman. In this unusual book, about a famous industrialist, written by a famous industrialist is an unguarded praise of the man to whom Andrew Carnegie owed so much. In recalling Watt's life as an inventor, as a businessman and as a Scot, Carnegie doesn't miss an opportunity to revel in his excellence. Both were self-made men, and in reading the book you gain an appreciation not only for James Watt, but also for the aging Carnegie, who could not prevent himself from embellishing some of his own personal touches.

Aside from the jingoism, and the 19th-century, unapologetic tone, the technical aspects of Watt's struggle to build steam engines in a pre-industrial era are perfectly captured by Carnegie, also an industrial revolutionary. His struggles in financing his business are understood perfectly by Carnegie, who also spent a lifetime developing financial backing. A plain scholar, without the parallel experiences would be hard-pressed to write such an empathetic account.

Good book.
Finding out about his upbringing and struggles makes it all a more remarkable story. Some of the language seems stilted, but seeing as it was written over 100 years ago, I guess that's to be expected. There's plenty to read, although at times it digresses into statements about life in the early 1900's (when it was written) and other inventors of the 1800's. That said, it was an enjoyable read, and finding out about his friends and colleagues helps to round things out.
A well-written and enjoyable read.
I really enjoyed this book. Good history and easy reading. Recommend to anyone who enjoys this kind of physics history.

Not only does Andrew Carnegie provide a very interesting and insightful view of James Watt, but his philosophical comments also give a better understanding of the author as well. This is a short read, but it is a very insightful biography of one of the greatest engineers of all time.
Great man great book.
One feels you are in that period, struggling to survive, but more importantly, improvise an equipment which benefits human being, industry for almost a century, especially the railways.
