These are time-test lessons on how to improve your interactions with others. It deals not with manipulating people to your will, but opening yourself and seeing how others respond. A definite read for those in the customer service industry.
This book was hard to pause. While listening to it you will have memories of similar situations which will allow you to assess your responses and reactions. Maybe you'll be a different person next time or act differently to diffuse a situation.

How to influence people and get great results in my life.
Highly recommend this book must read!!!
So glad I listened to this. I will most likely listen to it multiple times.
Not everyone thinks like you, so get them to think you think like them.
I know there are endless scenarios to how to talk and deal with people, but they are justified. Anyone who complains about this book's view on how to deal with people, obviously has a problem dealing with people and did not actually understand the concept. They can repeat the definitions, but fail to intellectually comprehend the lessons. Ironically I told a previous boss she was crazy for many of these ideas, but the examples helped send some of them home for me. Bottom-line, this will be a requirement for my employees to read in the future. Anyone who manages or leads needs to read, and more importantly, understand the teachings of Dale Carnegie.
This was a real fantastic listen. I enjoyed it thoroughly from the performance to the contents of the book itself. I'm looking forward to getting an actual copy of this book so I can reference it whenever I need to.
Carnegie gives tons of examples for each 'principle' listed which gives room to a lot of visualization and set models to follow after. I work while I listen to these audio books so the easy visualization gives room for multitasking too. It was definitely helpful to have each principle re-listed after the respective section was over.
One of the highlights of this book is the fact that it's about "genuinely" win friends. This book isn't just about trying to get a business deal or making your customers happy for the sake of your company. It teaches you to genuinely care about these people. And it doesn't just stop at business. The book stretches onward to family problems as well.
If you're looking to improve your relationships whether personal or professional, I would definitely recommend this book. There's a lot to it and some note-taking and reminders will be most helpful in making sure you haven't listened to this audio book in vain.
While the tips seem pretty obvious today -- don't criticize, be pleasant, think about what the other guy's interests are, don't humiliate -- they were presented thoughtfully and with a sense of humor. It says a lot that this book, written in the 1930's, could still be relevant today. So many forget (or ignore) the basics of successful human relationships.
Be the master of your fate; the captain of your soul.
This book confirms that to get more or of life for ourselves, we must first focus on and give more consideration to others. It is a bit like an oxymoron or contradition of ideas, though true nonetheless. Dale Carnegie's book is very well researched and gives numerious examples of how all the principles have been applied. In fact the book is pretty much a collection of examples of these principles that were applied by famous people and students of his lectures and courses. The narrative voice and style was perfect for this book given it was written in the early 1900s. The book is a classic and should be a must listen for all people on the personal growth journey.
This is the first motivational audio book I have gotten and I really like how it motivates me for the day and puts me in a positive mindset. I can listen to this book over and over again. If you are not a positive person you will not enjoy it half as much.
I remembered the basics on looking at things from the other persons view point. Thinking about what the other person needs over my own is very helpful.
I understand the understanding of the jokes perfectly that I may not have always gotten from just reading the book.
Yes, unfortunately I listen mostly on the train but this is something I could defiantly listen to all day on my day off. while cleaning the house or something.
Do not listen to the people who are bashing this classic, it is great you just have to want to understand people on the basic level. So just humble yourself and apply these simple practices.
