I realize it wasn't Carnegie, I only mentioned him because he also speaks of non-monetary rewards. As I recall, there's a line in there about how Napoleon realized that you could control people with "toys" such as job titles that involved no extra pay. He also spoke of the need to be sincere in offering praise. He didn't believe in giving praise or offering rewards bad behavior, but he did recognize the need to recognize and quickly reward the good. That's why I said that perhaps the book you speak of influenced Carnegie.
