Anyone who has read / planning to read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” will probably be surprised to learn that the book was written almost a century ago. It was first published in 1936 and has since sold over 15 million copies.
Not many (if any) books that are 100 years old sound today with the same fresh notes as this publication. Why is that? The obvious reason that we all can guess is that it touches on a timeless topic—that is, how to build long-lasting bridges to other people.
