Great narrator, excellent content. Inspiring ideas and wonderful, down to earth examples. Very helpful and insightful in regards to human nature and business and personal interactions. I finished it once and I'm already listening to it again.
Just a few good points: listen to what people have to say and be nice to them no matter what. Having to go through hours of doubtufl anecdotal evidence to get to this point is hard work. Interestingly, I can now tell which one of my colleagues has read this book --they are very lavish in their praise (need I say more?), just like Dale Carnegie suggested.
I've read the book and enjoyed it and find the audio to be enjoyable as well. Without being a religious book I found many of the lessons to be based upon principles from the Bible. Can't go wrong with that in my opinion.
If ever a book needed to be abridged this would be my first choice (I don't know if an abridged version is available). I agree with several comments from other listeners that it belabors its points needlessly. It also sounds very dated. Aside from the above caveats it makes for a good listen, even if only to reinforce similar principles expressed in more recent wrintings.
This is one of the most useful books I have ever read. Now I have it on my ipod and can listen to it when ever. I make a point to read this book at least once a year!
To win friends and influence people, be nice to them.
Mr. Carnegie and I say the same thing. He just takes a lot longer.
Listen to this audiobook and do so with an with an open willingness to accept the messages outlined so carefully by Dale Carnegie. I would be hard pressed to find someone who could not benefit from the experience!
Awesome stuff, must read for every human being......the world would be a lot batter place if every one had read this book.
