Students of public speaking continually ask, "How can I overcome self-consciousness and the fear that paralyzes me before an audience?" The authors answer, "How would you cure a horse that is afraid of cars--graze him in a back-woods lot where he would never see automobiles, or drive or pasture him where he would frequently see them? Practice, practice, PRACTICE in speaking before an audience will tend to remove all fear of audiences, just as practice in swimming will lead to confidence and facility in the water. You must learn to speak by speaking. But how shall you be able to criticize yourself? Simply by finding out three things: What are the qualities that make an effective speaker; how at least some of these qualities be acquired; and what wrong habits of speech work against acquiring and using the qualities you find to be good." This thorough, helpful, encouraging book will enable the aspiring speaker to do all three. Dale Carnegie, a pioneer in public speaking and personality development, gained fame by teaching others how to become successful. His book How to Win Friends and Influence People has sold more than 10 million copies. Joseph Esenwein wrote The Art of Story-Writing, Writing the Photoplay, and Children's Stories and How to Tell Them.

Dale Carnegie was an American self-improvement lecturer and author. Born in 1888, Carnegie was the son of a farmer, and worked throughout his childhood helping his parents with various tasks on the farm. He was fortunate, however, in that he was able to obtain an education in his young adulthood at a nearby Teacher s College. Carnegie worked as a salesman and an actor before he took up teaching public speaking courses at a New York YMCA branch, where he was living at the time. Carnegie s public speaking career took off, and through his success he was able to have several of his books published. His first book, Public Speaking: a Practical Course for Business Men sold well, but his most impressive achievement was the publication of his book How to Win Friends and Influence People, which was an immediate bestseller when it was published in 1936, and has gone on to sell millions of copies in thirty-one languages. Carnegie also worked to open the Dale Carnegie Institute, a learning-ground for those interested in his public speaking and self-improvement techniques, and Dale Carnegie courses are still taught today. Carnegie died of Hodgkin s Disease on November 1, 1955.
