Whats it with self improvement and putting up a front, to appropriate a homogenous identity which conforms to certain utterly un-scientific norms? I used to think. Until i chanced upon this book by Dale Carnegie. To borrow from an advertisement, 'He started it all'. Thank you very much Mr. Carnegie. Not only your book continues to remain a best seller, but your template has spawned a genre of best sellers too. On a serious note, i would recommend this book to every teenager out there, to appreciate and adapt an alternative form of interacting with people.
