in Project HOPE8 months ago

As the saying always goes that “A Good Reader is a good acquirer of knowledge” . No single person can bodly says that he knows all the wisdom, knowledge from the moment he was given birth. As we grow in this life, we begin to get exposed to surrounding, atmosphere, people, places and materials which will get us equipped in the aspect of getting knowledge.

I as a person though I love getting to learn new things daily but not a lover of reading book series that much but when I come across this book called “How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie” immediately I felt in love with that book I must confess.

It is more than a book, it is a life guider tool to become a better person and getting to live fulfilled in the positive side of life. At first when I come across the title of the book How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie, I was like asking myself some questions in form of like Is it worth checking this book out? How can I win friends other than be a good person? How can I really influence people when I am not in Authority? How can I influence people when I am not popular, famous or wealthy? How can I win friends when I am a shy person? All these questions keep ringing within me but when I take the first step to start reading the book, all my thought was proved wronged as I got addicted to the book.

At first I was like, But I have not heard about this author before? I mean “Dale Carnegie” but when I begin to read through the book, I discover that it is just much more than judging by the name of the author or judging by the decree of how much ones know or get familiar with the author, it is about getting to know what the author has to offer.

The ability to deal with people in a positive manner is much needed in this present world we are in. Many people are really suffering from the effect of dealing with people in a negative way which I can testify to it as I am also of a victim of those set of people. Dealing with people with should not only be limited to your working place. It covers more. It also includes your society, families, schools, environment, friends and many much more. If you are in these set of people thinking on how to improve how you can deal with people in a positive way, then these book is just the perfect guide to help you through your journey of improving.

Starting with the book, it is super enough to get addicted to the book and fall in love with the book immediately by just the title called “How to win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie” And moving on to get a little profile about the author, I discover that He is the arch-priest of the art of making friends. And not only limited to that but also He has created a series of other books which has impacted many lifes and makes on life improved physically generally making one a better person at whole.

These ranges list include:

(1). How to Develop Self-confidence and Influence People by Public Speaking

(2). How to Enjoy Your Life and Your Job

(3). How to Stop Worrying and Start Living

(4). The Quick and Easy Way to Effective Speaking

I will recommend you check out those others books.

Coming to the book, you are greeted with a lot of chapters captivating and tempting to get opened to and kickstart reading. And getting over to the purpose of reading this book, there are eight things this book will help you through and even more which include

(1). Get out of a mental rut, think new thoughts, acquire new visions, discover new ambitions.

(8). Arouse enthusiasm among your associates

Can you see how tempting those list are, yes and I can guarantee you the list is much more than that when you start reading through and getting so deep into the book.
300 pages of book, yeah so I will not expect you to read it through so fast but I can tell you that with the few and with the few chapters I have read, it has all been worth every penny of my time I allocated to reading it. It has helped me to see the bigger and clearer picture of life and how life operates and it has also helped me to deal with people more positively compared to before which I am very grateful of the book for. With so much impact this book is capable of doing to ones life positively, I realised why it has more than ten million readers in thirty-six languages.

With the long list of ideas to be gotten and to the greater perspective about life, friends, and influence to be exposed to, it is worth you allocating your time to reading that book.
I will say this is one of the best book I have come across this year and though I am still yet to complete the reading from Page 1 to the last page, but the few pages I have read, it has already impacted my life positive beyond what I can imagine or expected from the book.
So what are you waiting for, spare some of your time and kickstart your reading journey of the book. And I believe you are going to love it. I will be waiting to hear from you about what you have to say about this magic book in the comment section below

This book (.pdf) can be downloaded from this site:


"How to Win Friends and Influence People" has been published for the first time in 1936, and has risen to fame as one of the best selling books of all times (Source: New York Times). The fact alone that the concepts described in this book are still valid and appreciated some 84 years later is a testament about how good and valuable they are.

Dale Carnegie did not invent anything, as these techniques are ultimately based on common sense and pivot towards the golden rule of "don't be a jerk", but this book provides an extremely valuable and well written collection that gathers all the right things in one neat package.

I read this book years ago and still have fond memories of how much it helped me understand how to be a better person and have fruitful, more pleasant human relationships. Thank you for your review.
