Has anyone ever heard of this guy?
Charles Francis Haanel (May 22, 1866 - November 27, 1949)   , was a noted AmericanNew Thought author and a businessman. He is best known for his contributions to the New Thought Movement through his book The Master Key System.
I know some of the JW presentation is based on Dale Carnagie "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and I am just wondering if writings by Haanel are about to be brought to the forefront. I have seen some indications that they will be.
Hannel's book The Master Key System, was published in 1912, when he was 46 years old. It is written in the form of a course in New Thought, mental development, financial success, and personal health. The book was heavily promoted in the pages of Elizabeth Towne's New Thought magazine The Nautilus
He is a very interesting character. You might want to look him up.*
