RATING: 9.9 of 10.0
OVERVIEW: Designed to teach you to improve your overall happiness by improving your ability to communicate.
This book is one of the greatest books of all time. Dale Carnegie is the son of the famous industrialist and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Andrew Carnegie may possibly have been one of the wealthiest men to ever live.
Re-reading the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” was more insightful this time around This book opened my eyes to the importance of relationships and its role in a successful business, social, and family life. I rank Carnegie’s book one step below canonized scripture. If I had the influence, I would recommend this reading to every businessperson, high school student, and individual whose success relies on relationships.
It is strong encourage you to read this book over and over. Share it with as many people as you can. This book, if applied appropriately, could be one of the best gifts you ever offer.
