About the Author
Dale Carnegie (November 24, 1888 - November 1, 1955) was a celebrated American author and self-improvement guru. Born in poverty on a farm in Missouri, he built himself a successful career as a traveling salesman before moving on to teach public speaking at a New York YMCA in 1912. His course was a hit, and within two years he had moved out of the YMCA and founded the Dale Carnegie Institute to accommodate the huge demand for his classes.
His 1936 book How To Win Friends And Influence People was a global bestseller, selling almost 5 million copies during his lifetime and becoming a staple of business curriculums around the world.
This book should be part of every school curriculum. Learning to interact with people is possibly one of the most undervalued skills to navigating this world. As humans we've evolved because of our social structures, this book helps you to navigate this increasingly forgotten aspect of life. Even the most obtuse and seemingly anti-social person will take away many valuable lessons from this book. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
Worth it's weight in gold
An enjoyable book to read which was very informative and contained valuable principles. A must read for anyone looking to improve their day to day relationships with others.
First written years ago, still applies today.
Lessons in life suitable to a wide range of readers.
Many a problem solved
A very worthwhile reference.
Good book so far.
The Bible of success!
This book is an absolute must read. I don't say that a lot so you know I mean it this time. This book will change your life. It will make you rethink your actions and go "oh yeah... I should really do that". And the bonus? The actions are so easy to do. Dale is simply stating the obvious. If the entire population can follow the teachings in this book, there will be no WAR, only LOVE.

I recommend this book for anyone seeking friendships.
I learned quite a few things, but lost interest over too many stories about the author's past selling success toward the end.

A lot of the advice seems like common sense but so many people don't do it. Written in a great way.

This book is very interesting and has helped me with my relationships
