How to Enjoy Your Life and Your Job
Selections from How to Win Friends and Influence People and How To Stop Worrying and Start Living
Simon & Schuster, 1990
You can get any job done and like it, if you stay friendly, offer praise and don’t care whose name is put on your ideas.
In this day of self-help mania, it’s hard to know where to start. Everywhere you turn there’s another book being released by a motivational speaker. It’s time to get back to basics, and the best way to do that is to go to the father of self-help himself - Dale Carnegie. This compilation of the best of his classics could be re-titled "Dale Carnegie’s Greatest Hits." It is packed with anecdotes of how famous and not-so-famous people through the ages have hit tough situations in life and overcome them. Although some of the language is dated - Carnegie wrote much the material in the 1930’s - the situations he portrays are not limited to any era. You will be encouraged to know that you, too, can be happy, popular and organized. getAbstract recommends this book to anyone who works with people in any capacity; it could drastically change how you approach your life and the people around you.
