Although I don't agree with every example or approach (this book is somewhat dated in its understanding of psychology) it's a must read for just about anyone looking for a way to improve themselves or to create a basic toolset for interacting with people in both professional and personal situations.
Excellent book. Short and sweet. There's a lot of story telling. Sometimes it's easy to zone off. Fifth star taken off merely because the text seems to imply, until the VERY end, that all the principles will work like magic and instantly get you what you want. At the very end it admits that the principles may work only 10% or the time... but even 10% improvement in leadership is well worth the read. Overall, a timeless classic!
From start to finish I really enjoyed listening to the content of this book. This is a must read if you feel you are generally a good person but you feel nobody seems to care or like you. Have learnt so much about myself and people. I can see myself listening to this many times over and taking notes to personally grow within & in my relationships with people.
I had heard about Dale Carnegie as a teenager and early on in my career but had never taken yhe time to read any of his material.
Thanks to Audible, I've now had the chance to hear this book. Even after my first "read", I've already had success using the techniques and it's proven to be very effective in my business and personal life. I've recommended that my employees give it a listen for their own development.
This invaluable book lives up to its reputation!
