How to Win Friends and Influence People. Who wouldn’t want to know that?? Originally published in 1936, this one is for sure an oldie, but a goodie. A book that many seem to know (and love), and for those that haven’t read it, I’d bet they have at least heard of it.

Through Dale Carnegie‘s various courses and professional development teachings, he has been improving individual and business performance all over the world. Some of these courses include sales, effective speaking/human relations, and management seminars.
