How to Win Friends & Influence People

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of the first bestselling self-help books ever published. Written by Dale Carnegie and first published in 1936, it has sold more than 15 million copies. It was a New York Times best seller for 10 years.

The book gives tips and strategies for communicating with people. In contrast with some modern theories of psychology, which emphasize autonomy, self-expression and assertiveness, it echoes Lord Chesterfield's view that pleasing others is both a duty and a paradoxical route to personal success.

... I heard great things about this book and finally picked up my copy today. I can't wait to get started on it and take over the world. :)
