Dale Carnegie provides a variety of very simple, effective and easy to apply tactics, so that we can understand each other better and create in people a deep interest in knowing us.
“Don’t judge, don’t criticize, don’t condemn. People are exactly what you would be, if you had been raised under the same circumstances.” – Dale Carnegie
The book shows as well that in our interpersonal relationships, the little details are the ones which make all the difference: a smile, calling people by their names, correcting people’s mistakes without humiliating them, among other practices.
