About Carnegie:

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and pos-

sibly 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. 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.
