This holiday is also sometimes known as Friends Day. The birthday of Dale Carnegie was chosen as the date for the holiday. Although Carnegie was born in 1888, his books are still popular even today. Carnegie didn't write only several books, that help people around the world making friends, but he also was the author of psychological trainings in public speaking, interpersonal skills, salesmanship, self-improvement.
How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of the most famous books by Dale Carnegie. It was published in 1936 and immediately became a bestseller. 15 million copies were sold world-wide. The second, revised edition, was published posthumously in 1981. This release contained updated language and anecdotes, that were omitted in the first edition. At the same time the number of sections was reduced from 6 to 4, eliminating writing successful business letters and improving marital satisfaction.
Different events are organized on this day. Book stores organize selling exhibitions of Carnegie's books. Lectures, seminars and discussions aimed to help young people find themselves and start building relationships are held at schools and colleges.Remind me with Google Calendar
