About the Author

Dale Carnegie was a pioneer in public speaking and personality development. He became famous by showing others how to become successful. His book How to Win Friends and Influence People has sold more than 10 million copies and has been translated into many languages. His books became popular because of his illustrative stories and simple, well-phrased rules. Two of his most famous maxims are, "Believe that you will succeed, and you will," and "Learn to love, respect and enjoy other people." His other books include How to Stop Worrying and Start Living and Public Speaking and Influencing People in Business




I sent this book about beating worry to a friend. I then retrieved my own copy and I'm re-reading it because it's so well written and has so many solutions which cover different types of worry. It's also interesting to see how Dale Carnegie, stuck in a job selling trucks, decided to get out of a rut and get on to enjoying his life. First published in 1948 it's astonishing to see an invigorating writing style (radical in those austere times) that keeps the reader engaged. My friend, who asked me about worry at lunch, has emailed back: I love this book!



An age old favourite


I brought this book for my daughter who was starting to get anxious and have panic attacks. Thought she might not read it at 24 yrs but she even commented that she enjoyed reading the book and it had some helpful tips for her. Job done.
