Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language
In The Leader in You - Dale Carnegie (@carnegie2010How to win friends & influence people), the author argues that there may be nothing more powerful to win someones good will than to remember their names. He cites several examples from history, such as Napoleon, Roosevelt, etc. Although interesting anecdotes, I think this chapter is quite hyperbolic. It does not add anything new. It does not give any insight on how to remember names, for example, nor it discusses how remembering a name would be different from become genuinely interested in other people.
These are the other notes that link to this one.
