Rating: 5/5

This book seems like it is the original from which all other leadership books have been born. Dale Carnegie’s advice is simple, straightforward, and timeless. Nothing is revolutionary, but it is all framed in a way that makes it easy to remember and apply in your daily life. I made a conscious effort to apply some of the advice during a job interview, and it actually blew the interviewers away. In fact, I wanted to refer back to his advice so often that I had the chapter titles printed on a poster and brought it to my cube at work (which also serves as a great conversation starter!). His stories and examples about real people whom he met during his workshops do a great job of driving his points home.
