One of the best known motivational books in history: Since it was released in 1936, How to Win Friends and Influence People has sold more than 15 million copies. Carnegie's first book is timeless and appeals equally to business audiences, self-help audiences, and general readers alike. Proven advice for success in life: Carnegie believed that most successes come from an ability to communicate effectively rather than from brilliant insights. His book teaches these skills by showing readers how to value others and make them feel appreciated rather than manipulated. As relevant as ever before: In the age of Steven Covey and Tony Robbins, Dale Carnegie's principles endure. The original edition was published in response to the Great Depression, and this fresh edition will appeal now more than ever to readers wanting tried and true advice on how to deal with a depressed economy. Readers can learn how to get the job they want, improve the job they have, and make the best of any situation..
