I have started reading this several times and could never finish it, but with it on audio, it is easy to listen to and very applicable to anyone.
Carnegie is the early master of motivational teaching and relationship coaching. This is the original book. Most others are remixes of his original ideas. It's about changing your thought process to improve your relationships. It is not about faking relationships, it's about understanding what motivates other people, and responding it the appropriate way.
Think and Grow Rich is similar in terms of changing your thought process to improve your life, but is more dated and covers different subject areas. Listen to both, if you want to improve your relationships and success levels.

The idea isn't to win the argument. The idea is to make a friend. We become friends by being friends. Most people believe that they are the most interesting subject in the world.
If you are interested in motivational books, you should begin with Dale Carnegie and Napoleon Hill. Most other books build on these foundations. This book refers to faith in a positive way. Carnegie quotes from several religious and philosophical sources, but this is not an evangelistic book for any particular faith.
YES YES YES YES. THIS is invaluable information in dealing with people... not manipulating but being aware.
The text is oldfashioned and may be difficult to read for some (especially the younger generation). It is quite dry but the content is amazing. DO NOT SKIM. The temptation will be to skip a chapter after reading the first paragraph because the subject may be obvious. DON'T. Read / Listne to the examples and after the 3rd or 4th, you'll get it.
There is a reason this book has been a top seller for so long. It is the owners manual to a successful adult life. The audio book makes it that much better. Using
Yes, because certain Ideas from the book have been etched in my mind and I was anxious to see where in the book they were, and how well I remembered them without veering off course.
I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The principles presented are timeless and will always stay with me. In fact, I want to listen to it again soon! One of the best audiobooks I've had the privilege of listening to.
Yes. Self improvement gurus can't possibly be wrong, right?
I could be a better person, citizen and perhaps improve others lives in the process.
Unique, in that I usually listen to fiction. I bought this to play for lonely people I work with.
Excellent trainer for those who have trouble making friends, and feels that no one listens to them., it they will take the principles seriously. An A-1 self help book.
I have used it all my life. I am 72 years old. It has helped me in my local political life, sales and family relations. Now I use it to help others.
A must-read guide for not only business, but one's personal relations with friends and family.
The personal/historical examples are perfect, from Abraham Lincoln to Teddy Roosevelt to Charles Dickens. 30 years ago my father-in-law advised I read this book -- that it had changed his life -- and it took me this long to get to it! Better late than never....
The Lincoln examples are memorable.
His list of principles are clear and well-defined and flow naturally in the narrative.
Read this book and learn how to influence, to motivate, to succeed...
This might be the only book on human relations you'll ever need. Its simple yet very informing. It is not only a book about particular topic but rather a guide on how to achieve wanted results utilizing advices given in the book. Highly recommended!
