About This Item

NEW YORK: Simon & Schuster, 1945. 50th Edition. Hardcover. Good Plus. 8vo. Red boards, with black design encompassing author's initials, and title to front. Nudged corners, light rubbing to extremities, and very slightly cocked. Fabulous, self-referential inscription and signature, in light turquoise ink, to front free endpaper: "_________. You certainly know how to win friends. At least, you won me. Dale. November 22, 1946. Do hope we meet again at Bow Lake." Dale Carnegie's timeless classic, every bit as useful and valuable an interpersonal and business success tool as when it was first issued in 1937, has never gone out of print. This particular copy -- the 50th edition -- was issued in December of 1945. [Carnegie's timeless book] "...went through 17 print editions in its first year of publishing and sold 250,000 copies in the first three months. The book has sold over 15 million copies worldwide since and annually sells in excess of 100,000 copies. A recent Library of Congress survey ranked Carnegie's volume as the seventh most influential book in American history. (Stephen Watts, Self-Help Messiah; Wikipedia).

Synopsis

How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of the first bestselling self-help books ever published. Written by Dale Carnegie and first published in 1936, it has sold 15 million copies globally. Leon Shimkin of the publishing firm Simon & Schuster took one of the 14-week courses given by Carnegie in 1934. Shimkin persuaded Carnegie to let a stenographer take notes from the course to be revised for publication. In 1981 a new revised edition updated the language and updated anecdotes.
