Dale Carnegie was an illustrious American writer, developer, and lecturer of well-known courses in self-improvement, public speaking, interpersonal skills, stress management, salesmanship, and corporate training. He is famous the world over for authoring the seminal title ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ that opened the eyes of millions of readers to the concept that it was possible to change the conduct of other people by changing one’s own behavior to them. Even though this book and the many others that he wrote during his immensely successful career did not add any insights into human psychology, all of them emphatically conveyed the importance of an individual’s attitude and drove home the point that even handicaps could be converted to benefits if the presentation was right. His own progress from a poverty-stricken rural childhood to an immensely successful businessman touring the world is a case in point. Carnegie’s huge success is attributed to his ability to capitalize on people’s desire for success by offering advice that helped them to feel more confident and become successful.
