Dale Carnegie's "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living"

Postby Paul Davy » Sat Aug 08, 2009 5:39 am


I was just wondering if anyone had read Dale Carnegie's "How To Stop Worrying and Start Living", and if so, what they thought about it? Is any of the content aligned with the Dhamma?

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Years ago I read his book "How to Win Friends and Influence People," but somehow it didn't rub off. But it was a good book with all kinds of encouragement to care authentically about others, remember other people's names, look for things in others which you can honestly appreciate, listen carefully and put yourself in the other person's shoes, stuff like that. He seems like a fine gentleman and a skillful writer. fwiw
Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.
