The Book
In How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale covers the super-important topic of human relationships and influencing people to get what you want.

The book is divided into four parts:

  1. Fundamental techniques in handling people
  2. Six ways to make people like you
  3. How to win people to your way of thinking
  4. Be a leader: How to change people without giving offence or arousing resentment
Each of the parts covers the core principles on the topic and have an entire chapter dedicated to them. 

    Yellow - this book is like a coal mine where, by fortitude, you strike on gold once in a while. Confused? Allow me to explain.

    This book was written a long long time back when the genre of self-help books didn't exist, there was barely any researched material on human relationships and even modern psychology was in its nascent stages. At that time Dale identified a need and put together an excellent book.

    The only problem is that the 'principles' are observation driven wisdom, not scientifically validated facts. Some of the principles are very true - pure gold - clear must do - and, some of them are also pretty much common sense now. Others, not so - coal, that too poor quality.

    Generally, the book will teach you how to be a 'sweet-mouthed' devil, like a lot of salesmen, unfortunately, aspire to be. Others may end up being misguided by what's inside. So, your call!
