    This biographical information about Dale Carnegie was written as an introduction to
    the original edition of How to Win Friends and Influence People. It is reprinted in this
    edition to give the readers additional background on Dale Carnegie.
    It was a cold January night in 1935, but the weather couldn’t keep them away. Two
    thousand five hundred men and women thronged into the grand ballroom of the Hotel
    Pennsylvania in New York. Every available seat was filled by half-past seven. At eight
    o’clock, the eager crowd was still pouring in. The spacious balcony was soon jammed.
    Presently even standing space was at a premium, and hundreds of people, tired after
    navigating a day in business, stood up for an hour and a half that night to witness -
    what?
    A fashion show?
    A six-day bicycle race or a personal appearance by Clark Gable?
    No. These people had been lured there by a newspaper ad. Two evenings previously,
    they had seen this full-page announcement in the New York Sun staring them in the
    face:
    Learn to Speak Effectively
     Prepare for Leadership
    Old stuff? Yes, but believe it or not, in the most sophisticated town on earth, during a
    depression with 20 percent of the population on relief, twenty-five hundred people had
    left their homes and hustled to the hotel in response to that ad.
    The people who responded were of the upper economic strata - executives, employers
    and professionals.
    These men and women had come to hear the opening gun of an ultramodern,
    ultrapractical course in “Effective Speaking and Influencing Men in Business”- a course
    given by the Dale Carnegie Institute of Effective Speaking and Human Relations.
    Why were they there, these twenty-five hundred business men and women?
    Because of a sudden hunger for more education because of the depression?
