The principles of public speaking written by Dale Carnegie decades ago in this book are timeless. They are just as effective in working a crowd in today’s society as they were back then. He delves into ways of commanding and charming an audience with the right energy, tone of voice, pitch, pronunciation and vocabulary. Armed with the principles highlighted in this book, you can do more than convey a message to a group of people, you can move them.

Carnegie gives useful advice and hints on public speaking stating that when you have something to say, are adequately prepared and have mastered an audience then public speaking success is eminent. He delivers a topic by topic approach offering solutions to common public speaking problems. Moreover, each chapter features practice questions and exercises to help the reader understand the subject better.

Throughout the book there are numerous quotes and references from influential individuals and institutions to emphasize the subject. The book is also riddled with numerous stories and examples to expound on the subject and to paint a picture in the reader’s mind on what constitutes an effective public speaker as well as what kind of speech is considered effective.

Many people who think they are good public speakers are left in doubt after reading this book. ‘The Art of Public Speaking’ is an essential tool to help you learn to work a crowd, leave them charmed and hanging onto your every word.

The Science of Being Well

Wallace D. WATTLES (1860 - 1911)

If you are seeking better health and ways to stay well… Wallace D. Wattles was an American author and a pioneer success new thought movement writer. His most famous work and first book is a book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explains how to get rich. Additionally, In the Science of Getting Well, Wattles suggests the reader to think and ACT in a Certain Way. As with his first book, Wattles explains in simple concepts the keys to Getting Well. With faith and discipline, Wattles suggests you can stay well. Says Wattles “for those who want health, and who want a practical guide and handbook, not a philosophical treatise. It is an instructor in the use of the universal Principle of Life, and my effort has been to explain the way in so plain and simple a fashion that the reader, though he may have given no previous study to New Thought or metaphysics, may readily follow it to perfect health”. 

From the author of The Science of Getting Rich comes the Science of Being Well. In these pages you will find out how the power of positive thinking can improve your health. This practical guide will help your explore the principles of health and lead you to a healthy, happier you.

Famous works of the author Wallace D. Wattles: The Constructive Use of Foods, Hellfire Harrison, Jesus: The Man and His Work, a long speech made into a pamphlet, and the base of "A New Christ", A New Christ, Letters to a Woman's Husband, "The Science of" trilogy: The Science of Getting Rich, The Science of Being Great, The Science of Being Well.

The Science of Getting Rich is a book written by the New Thought Movement writer Wallace D. Wattles and published in 1910 by the Elizabeth Towne Company. The book is still in print. According to USA Today, the text is "divided into 17 short, straight-to-the-point chapters that explain how to overcome mental barriers, and how creation, rather than competition, is the hidden key to wealth attraction.

This book is based on the Hindu philosophies that One is All, and that All is One (Page one of Preface). The Science of Getting Rich is based upon what Wattles called "the Certain Way of Thinking." According to Mitch Horowitz, the editor-in-chief of the Jeremy Tarcher imprint of Penguin Books, which reprinted The Science of Getting Rich in 2007, Wattles' "Certain Way" descended from the "mental healing movement" that had started earlier with Phineas P. Quimby in the mid-19th century. As Horowitz explained to a reporter from the Washington Post, after experiencing relief from physical symptoms of discomfort or illness through Quimby's mental strategies, people began to wonder, "If my state of mind seems to have a positive influence over how I feel physically, what other things can it do? Can it lead to prosperity? Can it lead to happiness in my home? Can it lead to finding love and romance?" One result of such questioning was Wattles's application of Quimbian "mental healing" strategies to financial as well as physiological situations.

Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 hundred successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time, including Thomas Edison, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Joseph Stalin, Theodore Roosevelt, F.W. Woolworth, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, William H. Taft and Woodrow Wilson. Twenty years later, in 1928, Hill's Philosophy of Achievement was offered as a formula for rags to riches success and was published as The Law of Success. This life changing guide of 16 lessons has sold millions of copies for nearly three quarters of a century and was his first master work before Think and Grow Rich, one of the best-selling books of all time. Now you can hear 24 hours of the incredible philosophy upon which personal success is built, including: • The Master Mind...who can profit most by the law of success philosophy and your six most dangerous enemies • A Definite Chief Aim...instructions for applying its principles • Self-Confidence... heredity, the self-confidence formula, and the power of habit and discontentment • The Habit of Saving...walls of limitation, the slavery of debt, mastering the fear of poverty, “I have made a million dollars but I haven't got a cent,” and opportunities that come to those who save • Initiative and Leadership...the penalty of leadership and intolerance • Imagination... how it relates to success • it affects you and others, the psychology of good clothes and the seven deadly horsemen • Self-Control...why poverty is the richest experience that can come to a child • The Habit of Doing More Than Paid For...The Law of Increasing Returns! • Pleasing Personality... 3 different plans • Accurate Thought...the principles involved in accurate thinking and a chief aim • Concentration...persuasion vs. force • Co-Operation...power through co-operation and your standing army • Failure...the turning points to opportunity • Tolerance...the plan • The Golden Rule...the power of prayer As America's most beloved motivational author, Hill's timeless philosophy has created more millionaires than any other book or success theory combined. What took Mr. Hill over twenty years and hundreds of interviews to gather, can be the foundation for your success.
