Ken Langone started as a hardworking teenager who dug ditches and collected used cardboard; now he's a billionaire and business icon - a co-founder of The Home Depot, a former director of the New York Stock Exchange, and a world-class philanthropist. In this bestselling memoir he tells the gripping story of his unlikely rise and storied career. He describes how he learned to evaluate a business, sniffing out good bets even when others thought he was crazy. His story doubles as a passionate defense of the American Dream: a country in which any young striver can reach the maximum potential of his or her talents and work ethic. I Love Capitalism! is a classic American story - as inspiring as a Frank Capra movie, but a little too crazy to be fiction.
