Forest Hills, NY: Forest Hills Publishing Co., 1932. Early edition. Hardcover. 305 pages. Bibliography, board corners and top and bottom spine edges worn/small chips, small piece missing at top of spine. Dale Harbison Carnegie (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.

One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people's behavior by changing one's behavior toward them. Carnegie changed the spelling of his last name from "Carnagey" to Carnegie, at a time when Andrew Carnegie (unrelated) was a widely revered and recognized name. As Dale Carnagey he worked as assistant to Lowell Thomas in his famous travelogue "With Allenby in Palestine and Lawrence in Arabia". He managed and delivered the travelogue in Canada. By 1916 Dale was able to rent Carnegie Hall itself for a lecture to a packed house. Carnegie's first collection of his writings was Public Speaking: a Practical Course for Business Men (1926), later entitled Public Speaking and Influencing Men in Business (1932). His crowning achievement, however, was when Simon & Schuster published How to Win Friends and Influence People. Carnegie died at his home in Forest Hills, New York, where this early edition was published.
