Lakewood Chamber of Commerce Hosts Business Book Club

Many business professionals, civic leaders, and managers of organizations adhere to the principles outlined in the book How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. Are you one of them?

How do you make people like you?  How can you win people over to your way of thinking?  How do you challenge and change people without arousing resentment?  The answers to these questions lie within a book written over 75 years ago.

The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce announces our first business book club selection, How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie.  Written in 1936, this seminal self-improvement book continues to guide people of all walks of life in the universal challenge of face-to-face communication.

How to Win Friends and Influence People is continually listed as one of the top ten most influential business books of all time. We encourage readers from all walks of life to dust off a copy and read (or re-read) this classic and join the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce as we host a panel discussion with area business leaders at the Lakewood Public Library on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library Meeting Room.  We will discuss whether the principles Dale Carnegie outlined in his book can stand the test of time and are still relevant today.
