I was recently reading Dale Carnegie's book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. This book has helped thousands, if not million of individuals live more effective and happy lives. Whenever there is a survey of the most influential or inspiring books, this book consistently make the top five and is often second only to the Bible.
The section titled, “Six Ways to Make People Like You”, reveals the following rules for building bonds of friendship.
As you go through these rules, rate yourself in each area on a scale of 1 and 10 (1 = lowest, 10 = highest) that best defines your use of each rule.
