Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone has seen it all on his way from childhood poverty to a net worth beyond his wildest dreams. This story of his unlikely rise and controversial career is also a passionate defense of the American Dream -- of preserving a country in which any hungry kid can reach the maximum potential of his or her talents and work ethic. Langone shows how he struggled to get an education, break into Wall Street, and scramble for an MBA at night while competing with privileged competitors by day. He shares how he learned how to evaluate what a business is worth and apply his street smarts to 8-figure and 9-figure deals. And he's not shy about discussing, for the first time, his epic legal and PR battle with former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. His ultimate theme is that free enterprise is the key to giving everyone a leg up. As he writes: "This book is my love song to capitalism. Capitalism works! And I'm living proof -- it works for everybody. Blacks and whites and browns and everyone in between. Absolutely anybody is entitled to dream big, and absolutely everybody should dream big. I did. Show me where the silver spoon was in my mouth. I've got to argue profoundly and passionately: I'm the American Dream."
