Co-Founder Of Home Depot Ken Langone

Book cover - I Love Capitalism!

Ken Langone started as a hard-working teenager who dug ditches and collected used cardboard. Now, he’s a billionaire and business icon: a co-founder of Home Depot, a former director of the New York Stock Exchange, and a world-class philanthropist.

It wasn’t easy for an Italian-American kid from a blue-collar family to break into the clubby, WASP-dominated world of Wall Street in the late 1950s. But Langone pulled it off as he explains in his new book, "I Love Capitalism!: An American Story."
