Yes we have all been taught to be courteous and genuinely kind to others but, how many of us actually practice it daily. It took this book to remind me of the good manners my Mommy tried to instill in me. I can honestly say that I now understand what Mommy was saying and how it will affect my life in the future. A Must Listen Book for all TEENS and adults.
Some of these principles you may already have learned or followed intuitively, but hearing them laid out in this book can really help to reinforce them. Other principles in the book may sound almost too logical to even merit mentioning, until you realize that you've been doing the exact opposite! I think most of the great truths in life have that sense of being something you already knew, but just needed to rediscover, and the anecdotes in this book really help to keep these truths firmly planted. Putting them into practice, however, that's completely on you!
Impeccable research, great content and delivery, a five-star self-help book if there ever was one.
Having read this book many years ago, it came to life in a new way with the narration. In the text is much of the heart and soul of why people are who they are, doubtlessly one could gain a greater insight into day to day interactions we have with others after taking it in. We all know people that we wish would sit down and read this , but you could never get a word in edgewise to tell them .Maybe they may listen. Lets hope!
This is one of the best books for dealing with people ever written. If you can tune yourself to follow the advice you will have great success in life.
I chose this as my first audiobook, and absolutely enjoyed it! The reader is great to listen to and the material is right on. No wonder this book has been around for 70 yrs. I recommend this book highly!!!
Solid Advice to use anywhere in your life.
It has some old fashioned examples that you may skim, but overall it will help you. It teaches you how to win "good will," even if you have to lose an argument or two.
