This bestseller is an oldie (How to Win Friends & Influence People published in 1937) but remains an extraordinarily valuable and timeless work. I love books intertwined with history anyway. It’s about the lives of people who have meant something to the world. Pioneers who invented the wheel for us. People with universal problems that they dealt with in surprising and effective ways. Has a perspective! To know that in times ago people ran into the same things and just went through it.
