Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey until 1922 and possibly somewhat later) (November 24, 1888 – November 1, 1955) was an American writer and lecturer and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills.
Born in poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, first published in 1936, a massive bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote a biography of Abraham Lincoln, titled Lincoln the Unknown, as well as several other books.
Carnegie was an early proponent of what is now called responsibility assumption, although this only appears minutely in his written work. One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people’s behavior by changing one’s reaction to them.

The book also throws a lot of light on the lives of many other people who were connected to Abraham Lincoln during his formative years, his years as a lawyer in Springfield, Illinois, and in the latter part of his life as a legislator culminating in his time as the President of the United States of America.
The vast array of personalities referred to in the book offer a formidable glimpse into the lives and habits of those great personalities such as Stephen A.Douglas and U.S. Grant whom history has considered to be men of greatness if not equal to that of Abraham Lincoln.
