Dale Carnegie's popular book "How to Win Friends and Influence People," first published during the Great Depression, provided the template for modern ideas about how to move upward through society. It made psychology (instead of morality) and notions of personality (rather than character) the basic elements of its formula. In turn, Carnegie provided the inspiration for a host of subsequent success advocates like Norman Vincent Peale, Stephen Covey, Tony Robbins and Oprah Winfrey. MU history professor Steve Watts, author of "Self-Help Messiah: Dale Carnegie and Success in Modern America" will tell us how this farm boy from northwestern Missouri became one of the most influential figures in the shaping of modern American values. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
