After leaving college his first real job was as a salesman selling bacon. He was very successful at this but he had always wanted to be an actor so he gave up his job and moved to New York to follow this dream. It was in New York that he started giving classes in public speaking. These classes soon became very popular and he began to make a lot of money. He also started writing about ways that people can improve their self-confidence. In the 1930s*his most famous book, How to Win Friends and influence People, was published. The book has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide. In it Carnegie describes ways to get people to do what you want them to do and how to deal with people so that they feel important. Carnegie died in 1955 but his books and ideas are still very popular today and people in seventy-five countries continue to do Carnegie courses.
