How to Win Friends and Influence People

An excellent book and the precursor to self-help books. Dale Carnegie’s book is filled to the brim with great tips and advice to become a person with better interpersonal skills.

The book itself is easily read and Carnegie favors clarity to tell what you should do to become more liked but also why. The strength of the book is clearly in the many examples and anecdotes of people who have used the advice to great effect. Some of the tips or “principles” as they are known as in the book however do overlap each other and by carefully reading you can glimpse many insights of human nature.

Overall a great book and if everybody read this I am sure the world would be headed to a better place.

5 out of 5 stars.
