When I was a teenager, I was a junior counselor at a sports camp in North Carolina. On the first day of camp, the entire staff was given copies of Dale Carnegie's 1936 self-help book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, one of the bestselling books of all time. The camp director told us it was one of the most important books we would ever read. I read the whole thing in a couple days and have tried to read it every few years since then. Recently, I got the book on tape from audible.com and have been walking around the Lower East Side listening on my ipod (I'm just realizing how dorky that is.)"Go read what lessons Lindsay's learned from reading the book.
I remember that my mom liked it too.
