How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie

How to Win Friends and Influence People is an unapologetically ambitious self-help book designed to deliver the American Dream directly into the sweaty hands of the hopeful reader. Depending on your perspective, it either encourages the reader to become a better person or simply teaches them how to use positivity-based manipulation techniques to get what they want. Either way, it is a wholehearted pitch for those serious about their future as a big-time business mogul to examine the selfishness in their own nature as well become more attentive to the insecurities and self-absorption of all humans. Altruistic or ungodly? That can only be decided on a reader-to-reader basis. This much is true: when it comes to money, author Dale Carnegie knows to start with the tender hearts of its dubious champions, the people themselves.
