Recently I was honored to be featured among a group of “influencers” and was asked “What is the best self development book you’ve ever read and why is it different from the rest?” Walk down any self development aisle at the book store or better yet, look up the category on Amazon, and you’ll quickly become overwhelmed by the choices. However, for me there is one that stands out and my quote below joins several others on SelfDevelopmentSecrets.com for this #1 pick.
Self-development books have been at the core of my work since I launched my business five years ago. Of the many great texts that have helped me, one that stands out is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. Initially, something about the title of this famous book kept me away—to me, it sounded like a way to game people for your benefit, which I didn’t like. But when I finally read it, I realized this book shows you how to communicate with others for everyone’s benefit. Come to find out, this was my grandfather’s go-to text when he was running his business many decades ago.
