I'm a huge fan of short stories and this book gave many real life examples of leadership situations, obstacles they face, and the solutions they came up with to be successful. The naration was also engaging, as if it were the author of the book reading himself.
I read this book years ago & felt that the title was a little misleading. It has a rather shallow ring to it, yet the book itself isn't shallow at all. It is a very personal look at oneself on how to genuinely treat people in all walks of life & even our loved ones. When I find myself getting frustrated with people, I think about many of this author's taught principles & realize it's MY ATTITUDE that needs tweaking... So I enjoyed listening to it & it really helped clear my head.
This is a book that I wish I had read when I was younger. Learning and practicing this information at a younger age, probably would have saved me a lot of failure and brought more success earlier in my life. Now that I've read it, it's something that I plan to read every year because it is that valuable.
I've read quiet a few books on self-improvement and how to deal with people and this one is a must read. Simple easy steps that if done correctly can make a big difference in your life. All the advise is relevant. Some I already have done but Dale Carnegie does a good job of explaining why it works by speaking in the other person's viewpoint. Mr. Carnegie has a good sense of humor too. What he teaches is common sense, though common sense is not always common. I'll probably pick it back up in a few months just to brush up on my skills and for a good laugh. I'm glad I bought this book. 😊
Very useful for people with previous work experience with wins and struggles. It puts it all into perspective and makes you understand how everything could have been lead into a better result.
Loved it! A true gem to listen to agains and again. A must for any leader.
