About the Author

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) described himself as a "simple country boy" from Missouri but was also a pioneer of the self-improvement genre. Since the 1936 publication of his first book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, he has touched millions of readers and his classic works continue to impact lives to this day.

More About the Author

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and possibly somewhat later) (November 24, 1888 ??? November 1, 1955) was an American writer and lecturer and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking and interpersonal skills. Born in poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, first published in 1936, a massive bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote a biography of Abraham Lincoln, titled Lincoln the Unknown, as well as several other books.

Carnegie was an early proponent of what is now called responsibility assumption, although this only appears minutely in his written work.[citation needed] One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people's behavior by changing one's reaction to them.

"How to Enjoy Your Life and Your Job" was created by taking excerpts from "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" - both excellent books. Buy those books separately or buy "Dale Carnegies Lifetime Plan for Success : The Great Bestselling Works Complete In One Volume" (ISBN: 1578660394) which contains both complete books. This way you get Carnegie's work in its complete form. I consider Carnegie to be one of the best self-help authors of all time, and that is reflected in these writings. Carnegie's work will help you improve your attitude, relationships, choices, and the results you achieve in life if you are willing to put his advice into practice. I only gave this book 3 stars because it is just a rehash of Carnegie's other books, with material cut out.

My copy of this book is yellowed, tattered and over 30 years old. Nonetheless, I can open to any page and find a bit of timeless wisdom and truth. I've worked in difficult situations with groups and individuals for the past ten years. I've worked with, convicts, hardcore addicts and the mentally ill. I've also worked with highly educated, wealthy, distinguished individuals. I'm here to tell you that the techniques in this book will work with all people.
No one likes to be criticized or condemned. We all want to save face and feel important. This book teaches you the power of humility and the art of getting what you want while working cooperatively and harmoniously with others.
If you find yourself struggling at your current job or if you're in conflict with your co-workers or employees, I'd recommend trying some of the techniques and principles outlined in this book.

When I was about 15 years old I read the arabic translation of "How to win friends". This book, "How to enjoy yor life", is a selection of chapters from the abovementioned book and from "How to stop worrying and start living". Dale Carnegie's style is very simple and he conveys a deep understanding of human nature. The book was easy to read and hosted a large number of ideas on how to lead a more effective life; none of the ideas are revolutionary, they are simply common sense practices that we fail to implement on a daily basis.

Dale Carnegie is an amazing author and the wisdom in this book is life-changing.

The real problem with this book is that the product description failed to mention that it is a **COMPILATION** of excerpts from 2 other books:

"How to Stop Worrying and Start Living", and
"How to Win Friends and Influence People".

I already had those two books and, so, wasted my money by buying this book.

I always was a good man, after reading this book I became a better man, and I shall be eternally grateful to Dale Carnegie for his great work on this book. This book is a life changer, and also one of the best examples that we never know enough and that we should keep learning something new in each day of our lives.
It mentions the originality and how important it is to be ourselves rather than trying to be someone which we aren't and can't be. It covers our 'boredom' we get at work and it shows us the way how to turn it into a happiness.So easy that is, If I only knew that before.
And this book of course it is extremely rich by powerful sayings
and true life stories from people of all ages.
YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK and after you do YOU'LL WELCOME DAILY
PROBLEMS with all your heart because you'll know by then, how to
make them dissapear - within seconds.
