From the Publisher:
A revision of the author's classic reference, Public Speaking, provides for the challenges being faced by modern readers while retaining the original work's philosophies and methods, in a guide that restores three essays first included by Carnegie, including Russell H. Conwell's "Acres of Diamonds," James Allen's "As a Man Thinketh," and Elbert Hubbard's "A Message to Garcia." Original.The landmark edition of Dale Carnegie's public-speaking bible.
Dale Carnegie, author of the legendary How to Win Friends and Influence People, began his career as the premier "life coach" of the twentieth century by teaching the art of public speaking. Public speaking, as Carnegie saw it, is a vital skill that can be attained through basic and repeated steps. His classic volume on the subject appeared in 1926 and was revised twice-in shortened versions-in 1956 and 1962. This 2006 revision-edited by a longtime consultant to Dale Carnegie & Associates, Inc., and the editor in charge of updating How to Win Friends and Influence People-is the definitive one for our era.
While up-to-date in its language and points of reference, Public Speaking for Success preserves the full range of ideas and methods that appeared in the original: including Carnegie's complete speech and diction exercises, which follow each chapter, as the author originally designated them. This edition restores Carnegie's original appendix of the three complete self-help classics: Acres of Diamonds by Russell H. Conwell, As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, and A Message to Garcia by Elbert Hubbard. Carnegie included these essays in his original edition because, although they do not directly relate to public speaking, he felt they would be of great value to the readers. Here is the definitive update of the best-loved public-speaking book of all time.
Dale Carnegie is known for his book "How to Win Friends and Influence People", which has been a perennial bestseller since its publication in 1936. Born in Missouri and educated at Warrensburg State Teachers College, Carnegie worked as a salesman and then moved to New York City where, beginning in 1912, he gave lectures on public speaking at the YMCA. He expanded his lectures to include getting along with people in business and social settings, and he emphasized the need for engineers and technicians to develop public-speaking and leadership skills in order to rise in the business world. Over time, Carnegie expanded his lectures until he had a book, which was expected to be a modest seller. "How to Win Friends and Influence People" uses a combination of maxims, profiles of successful people, and research based on surveys to stir its readers. It is the model for the many subsequent books on success for general readers, and for books on motivation and leadership addressed to the business community.
