Power is in people. Think about it. Everything good in your life came from a connection to someone. Dale Carnegie wrote this book back in 1936. That’s a really long time ago! But it shows you that if knowledge can last that long then it’s good knowledge. So many people get caught up in the next best new book or motivational speaker and so on. Really we need to get back to the basics. The time-tested advice in this book has been quoted by thousands of successful people. Inside you will find proven ways to make people like you, win them to your way of thinking, get them interested in you and much more. 

I’ve read this book a few times and each time it freshens up my social life. Most of the advice is really simple such as be easy going, smile, listen and so on. But it’s profound and it works. I highly recommend this book if you have or want to improve your social life. 

A classic book indeed and one I didn’t want to leave out. It was in fact the last song I wrote for the album. As a UK guy I wanted to represent with some UK garage. The song construction was a really simple 4/4 ukg beat with minimal instruments. Lyric wise I simply summarized the main parts of the book. To help with this I went through a few blurbs online as well as referring to my own book notes. Once I had the chorus down I sent it off to my singer Jessona to try a few versions of some basslines I had.
