How to Win Friends & Influence PeopleHow to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

My grandfather, the most affable person I’ve ever met, swore by Dale Carnegie’s books. This is the first that I have read and I find it to be quite helpful. Sometimes I refer to parts of it to remind myself to apply them in my daily life.

 

The title may sounds pretentious, or like something only a salesperson or politician would read, but it’s really helpful just for how a person interacts with other people.

 

I have had problems with social anxiety, and I find that thinking about some of Carnegie’s methods helps me handle social situations by concentrating on being genuinely interested in what people have to say rather than how awkward I feel.

 

Bottom Line: How to Win Friends and Influence People can help pretty much anyone interact with his or her peers more effectively.
