This term of phrase came from a book written over 70 years ago. And a bloody good book it is too. Ive recently revisited it with a renewed skip in my step (on my Kindle app, no less.....I can read it anytime I want from my iPhone). I can't recommend it enough, this book makes me feel that all is well with the world and that I am impenetrable! Its not a self help book per-se, its more a book on studying the psyche of other peoples behaviour and how you can come to agreements/arrangements that work in BOTH your favours. The trouble is, everyone SHOULD read this book so that everyone has a level pegging. I seriously think that all schools should teach its findings in school. Kids would leave school with excellent morals and ready to face the world with a supreme confidence.
This book was written mainly for people in business; to learn to be effective communicators. But I feel anyone can learn from its lessons and utilise it in their normal, daily lives. Whether you are a stay at home mum, a postman, a road sweeper, Richard Branson.
Im going to start a discussion group in a months time so if you want to join, try and find a copy of this book on AMAZON (or ebay) NOW! Don't pay more than £6 for it as its quite cheap. Or you can Kindle it or download the entre book (PDF file) for FREE, by typing this in your address bar: erudition.mohit.tripod.com/_Influence_People.pdf
By god, its a beauty. A real treasure and one that you will thank Dale Carnegie for, for the rest of your life. And maybe me, too - for introducing it to you!!! He heeeee **insert smug but happy to share the inspiration look**
Leave a comment below if you are interested in joining the discussion group. Then I'm going to run a free journal class to accompany it.
