How to Win Friends and Influence People

APRIL 18TH, 2016

Getting ready to win some friends and influence some people!
Brain Power’s book club had an enlightening time reading Dale Carnegie’s classic self-help book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” (1936). A classic in the genre, Carnegie’s book was the American guidebook to social relations for generations of successful (and would-be-successful) professionals.

We discussed the positives and negatives of Carnegie’s approach to human relations, including the ethics of “winning” (not making!) friends and “influencing” (or maybe manipulating?) people.
