By |2022-10-06T21:13:05-04:00March 5th, 2019|

It’s hard to find a book written 80 years ago that still has a place in our culture. I mean, sure, in school we’re made to read The Scarlet Letter, but who actually wants to? If there’s one book that has aged well, a book that people choose to read, it’s How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
