Random Question # 64

Random Question 64

75 years after the original book was published, a new edition adapted to the age of Twitter and Facebook was published in 2011.The New York Times slammed the new adaptation in a scathing review.Here is an excerpt .
.
The devastation, in terms of X’s original charm, is nearly complete. Were X alive to read this grievous book, he would clutch his chest like Redd Foxx in “Sanford and Son,” smile wanly for a few minutes (he didn’t like to make others feel bad), then keel over into his cornflakes.

X, that master of graceful temperament, would not approve of kicking a book when it was down. So let me conclude with the good news. His original book, unmolested, can still be found on bookstore shelves. Life can go on as if this new one simply did not exist.

Identify X (the author ) and the book.

Ans. X - Dale Carnegie and How to win friends and influence people
