I had read this book 15 years ago. It was nice to have refresher on Audiobook. Reminded me of the principles
The Covey books are comparable.
I think this is one of the best books ever written. It gives me many ideas that I can use in my work, my family and my church interactions. I try to listen to a few minutes of the book most days, but I especially try and listen when I'm down or not feeling mentally up!
yes - highly valued lessons of psychology applicable to any interaction
History honored lessons in human interaction which can be easily applied to improve your job and personal satisfaction
If your looking to change your life for the better, this is the perfect title for you to get you headed in the right direction.
DC is the man and all walks of life should read this. all ages, all people. the world would be a much better place.
use one teaching principle a week and make the most of this! Like listening to on my commute to work on subway. always gets my blood pumping before everyone else gets into the office.
It could have been less repetitive.
Made it less repetitive and used better metaphors.
It was fine but a little patronizing at times.
It did cause me to remember how important it is to handle people with kindness instead of harshness.
This book tells us much of what we probably already know, though that can be useful as a reminder. Kindness and withholding condemnation are ways to form good relationships, but knowing what to do and having the ability to carry it out are two different things. Im not sure that that is simply a matter of learning. One must have the love within himself to do what he knows is best. Can love be gotten from a book?
I plan to. I think the book will prove invaluable in helping me become better at relating to and dealing with people. Listening to it again will help concrete the principles in my memory.
How to Win Friends... really helps explain a lot about human behavior and helped me understand better why some people do and say what they do. It also helped me learn how to better approach those with whom I am having difficulty to at the very least smooth things over and at best win them to my point of view.
no characters in the book really unless you count the example stories
Vital communication skills. I can not emphasize enough how valuable I think this book will be. The principles even helped me better understand my own motivations and behaviors. I would almost say this is a mandatory read.
Great People Skills
each chapter had something specific that everyone should learn. "Father Forgets" is my favorite principle
voice and connotation was perfect
"PEOPLE SKILLS" and how treat and deal with people sincerely
This should be a course on this book in high school or college on how to deal with people
Yes!!! It is a timeless read.It shows how life situations really have not changed that much over the past century. You would think it was written in 2013! It was way more than I expected from a book that I have overlooked for years.
There's so many good lessons in this book I plan on listening to it several times a year and plan on buying the book as gifts for friends.
Very personable clear voice, excellent diction, conversationalist read instead of a script read.
I felt like a light went on. I can already spot people that have read this book and applied its principles in their lives. I'm more confident.
Great book, everyone should read it and apply some or all of it's principles to their lives. It would make the world a much better place.
