A great classic we can all gain something from. One of those books I always shied away from in the stores, but to my delight a wonderful and valuable listen. Only the cynical of the cynical could seek to discredit the time honored principles this book is based on. Whilst the principles may be basic in their raw form, it is truly left to the reader/listener to decide for themselves if they are living by them and how it is affecting their life. It gives one something to stop and think about, even if the answers are obvious ... You actually have to stop assess your life and consider them for yourself. This should be read in schools in my opinion.
One of the better all-time authority and pioneer in the matter, Dale Carnegie, combined whit one of the better Narrator, Andrew MacMillan, this Audiobook is really a treasure I found.
THIS BOOK IS ONE OF A KIND. LOVE IT, GREAT READ, PLUS THE STORIES USED TO ILLUSTRATE THE PRINCIPALS ARE GREAT. THE READER HAS A VERY CALM, EASY TO LISTEN TO VOICE THAT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO LEARN.
For a self-help book, this is pretty good. I wish people who torment me would read it and take it to heart.
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.
