Who is Dale Carnegie? A short biography at SelfHelp.fmBorn to an impoverished farm family in Maryville, Missouri, Dale Carnegie would eventually become one of the most influential authors in modern history. Best known for his book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People," the title landed in bookstores in 1936, and quickly vaulted Carnegie into public consciousness. Carnegie discovered his passion for helping motivate people when faltering while leading a class for public speaking at a local YMCA. He had run out of materials, and – on a whim – he asked his students to talk about something that "angered them". Suddenly, their persona's changed, and their fear over public speaking evaporated. A watershed moment in Carnegie's career, the experience taught him that there are specific techniques we can use to motivate ourselves and improve almost every aspect of our lives.
