Welcome to this month’s Shelf Help Pick:How to Win Friends and Influence People By Dale Carnegie.


This book has six sections but let’s jump to the section that you’ll probably like the most!
Here are the six ways to make people like you!
  1. Become genuinely interested in other people. 
  2. Smile.
  3. Remember that a person’s name is, to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
  4. Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.
  5. Talk in terms of the other person’s interest.
  6. Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.
