Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) described himself as a "simple country boy" from Missouri but was also a pioneer of the self-improvement genre. Since the 1936 publication of his first book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, he has touched millions of readers and his classic works continue to impact lives to this day.
Making yourself visible on the horizon of what seems like an endless digital sea sounds hopeless, but learning to personalize yourself is easier than it seems. Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends & Influence People has been casting its empowering spell since 1936, bringing self-confidence to tens of millions of readers. This edition not only celebrates the 75th anniversary of that resilient bestseller; it also reshapes Carnegie's concept within the context of this age of social networking. An old chestnut that proves relevant to a new age.
Although it's been 75 years since Carnegie's landmark How To Win Friends and Influence People was published, his approach to communication is still relevant today. According to the Dale Carnegie & Associates organization, the hyper frequency and speed of interactions make it crucially important to get one's message right the first time. Readers are advised to consider the listener before speaking and to avoid criticism, condemnation, and complaint. Integrity is essential, and it's important for one to admit wrong-doing or wrong speaking. This updated book offers easy-to-employ strategies for lasting, productive progress in conversations as well as collaborations in business or personal life. A winner for individuals and libraries alike. [See Prepub Alert, 4/25/11.
