  1. I remember my mother saying that her dad (therefore, my grandfather) was a total introvert, who didn’t ever talk to anyone – including his kids. He read Dale Carnegie’s book and was never again the same person. He became gregarious and friendly. So, the book made a difference in at least one person’s life.
