Figure DALE CARNEGIE speaking on the topic which has brought inspiration to millions HOW TO WIN FRIENDS & INFLUENCE PEOPLE The Book outsold in 1938, the third year of its publication, all books published in 1938. The Book has the greatest sales record of any non-fiction work in the Twentieth Century. DALE CARNEGIE How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie has sold over a million copies in its first eighteen months of publication—setting an all-time record for non-fiction books. Dale Carnegie has achieved success by telling others how to succeed, not only through his lectures, but over the radio, and in his daily newspaper column, as well. Born on an obscure Missouri farm ten miles from a railway, Dale Carnegie today, at forty-nine, is one of the most spectacular forces in the movement for adult education that is sweeping the nation. During the past twenty-six years, Mr. Carnegie has trained more than 30,000 men and women in the art of effective speaking and personality development. The Dale Carnegie Institute in New York with branches in cities thruout the United States is the only organization in the world conducting a combined course in Effective Speaking, Personality Improvement and Human Relations for business men and women. There are 22 colleges and universities in New York City conducting extension courses; yet more adults come to Dale Carnegie than to all these extension courses combined. How to Win Friends and Influence People was written as a practical, working textbook for use in Mr. Carnegie's classes. He hired two trained research experts to spend over a year and a half reading everything they could find on the subject. Mr. Carnegie personally interviewed scores of successful people. From all this material, he prepared a short talk called How to Win Friends and Influence People. He urged his students to go out and test the principles embodied in his talk. These men and women were working in a new kind of laboratory—the first and only laboratory of human relationships for adults that has ever existed. How to Win Friends and Influence People grew and developed out of that laboratory—out of the experiences of thousands of adults, who went out and applied these principles. Dale Carnegie has thrilled hundreds of audiences all over the country, with this lecture. In many cities he attracted the largest crowd in the history of the city, with some audiences reaching nearly ten thousand persons. So important do many organizations consider the text of Mr. Carnegie's talk that they have chartered buses in order that their employs might benefit from his advice. People have driven three and four hundred miles just to hear this remarkable man.
