How to win friends and influence people – Dale Carnegie

How to win friends and influence people is Dale Carnegie’s eternal classic. It is
one of the most powerful books every written on self-help and improvement
which provides business like tricks in winning hearts. 15 million copies sold all
over the word, translated into 36 languages, first published in 1936 and still
relevant today.

Dale talks about the influence of positivity in people and how we can make
things work in favour of the situation desired. He talks about how to handle
people in a way that is welcoming and intimidating.

I would call this as a well-researched, practical guided narratives positioned to
engage in inner development and foresight.

My favourite picks from this book are:

“There is only one way under high heaven to get the best of an argument — and
that is to avoid it.”

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing
that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”

“To be interesting, be interested.”

“Talk to someone about themselves and they’ll listen for hours.”

“Everybody in the world is seeking happiness — and there is one sure way to
find it. That is by controlling your thoughts. Happiness doesn’t depend on
outward conditions. It depends on inner conditions.”
