The 1936 book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” has sold over 15 million copies and still ranks in the top 100 Amazon best sellers regularly. Why? Because its content is timeless. For example, here are six things to make people like you (and all can be applied to selling your book): 1) Become genuinely interested in other people, 2) Smile, 3) Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound, 4) Be a good listener, 5) Talk in terms of other people’s interests, and 6) Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.
