Dale Harbison Carnegie ( / ˈ k ɑːr n ɪ ɡ i / ; [1] spelled Carnagey until c. 1922; 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 into poverty on a farm in Missouri , he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936), a bestseller that remains popular today. He also wrote How to Stop Worrying and Start Living (1948), Lincoln the Unknown (1932), and several other books.

One of the core ideas in his books is that it is possible to change other people's behavior by changing one's behavior toward them.

Carnegie changed the spelling of his last name at a time when the steel magnate Andrew Carnegie , to whom he was not related, was a widely recognized, much-revered name. As Dale Carnagey, he worked as assistant to Lowell Thomas in his famous travelogue "With Allenby in Palestine and Lawrence in Arabia". He managed and delivered the travelogue in Canada.
