I learned so much about how to work with people in this, it will enrich my way of interacting with people for many years to come. This should be required listening for anyone. Awesome book. I love how he says "New Yorrrrrk" lol
This is a classic and the reader brought the story to life. I thoroughly enjoyed the messages that every man woman and child should learn to live a fulfilled life.
Thought provoking and easy to apply to everyday life both professional and personal.
He had a pleasant but expressive tone. A pleasure to listen to.
A Guide to Living
The book is a classic but some of the information is dated. For example - not much was known about mental illness at the time of its writing and also some examples such as flattery of the secretaries may be considered harassment by today's standards. But this was such a minute part of the book that it does not detract from the rest of the invaluable information.
Of course, I would. In spite of the misleading title, this book is not about the use of people. On the contrary, like Jesus said, the leader is the one who serves rather than the one who is served. The leader has a genuine interest in people. 18 years ago I went with my father, who had just received an important medal in Brazil from the Judicial system along with the President of the Supreme Court. My father could not speak two minutes with the President, while I who was by then just a student of law talked to him for more than one hour and was invited to spend two weeks in his private house. I just gave to the President of Justice of the Supreme Court what he craved: a sense of importance. I listened much more than I talked. I made several questions about things he liked to talk about, like volleyball, swimming pools, jokes. He treated me like I was the most important person there. I was the only one giving him a pleasant time. I did not ask a thing. But he filled me with offers. In my work place, I have never had a single problem with anyone for sixteen years, only because I speak with everybody, from the President of Brazil to the killers and thieves in the slums. I was kidnapped last year, and they kidnappers liked me so much that they wanted to return my car to rob another one. I decline such offer, because I knew that someone else might be killed for lack of interpersonal skills to deal with kidnappers. In the beginning, they wanted to kidnap my mother, to take me to rob a bank in another State. I smiled my way through all of that, using what I've learned in this book, the Tao and the Bible. This book can do wonders for you in every level of your life: with your mother-in-law, with your wife, with your children, boss, employees, etc. It is a simple yet profound guide to live among other human beings. Those lessons will be important two thousand years from now, like Jesus teachings are as valid today as they were long ago. You may not know the name of so and so, but that doesn't matter. Take way the lessons on how to deal with people, whatever your profession may be: it is going to be worthwhile. I guarantee.
Andrew Macmililan has a wonderful voice. He was the right man for the job. I only wish he had read more books than only the two written by this author.
Too many to remember. It is not a book to be only read. It is a book for action. It changes the way you deal with people. Every person should read at least once such book.
What you can do with what you learn from this book is so precious that it's price is insignificante. You may save your marriage. Have a much better relationship with your children. Be both respected and loved both by people that work over you and under you. This book helped me escape from six roberies and one kidnapping completely safe. There is no limit to what you can apply those lessons. You will be a wiser person, a person that most people will enjoy be around. This book opens a whole new other ways to use the lessons taught, in ways unthinkable to its author himself. You should give it to anyone you care about. It is not one of those cheap self-help books. It was written before this time. It simple to understand, didatic, taught step by step. Most of the things you will read or listen won't change your life as this book will.
Truly life changing

Each character that the author includes in his book. Andrew does a remarkable job performing a multitude of dialogues from a diverse range of characters.
I will listen to this book many more time over a lifetime because there are so many key principles to improving human relations and the over all quality of life for myself and others.
This book should be mandatory reading (or listening) for everyone. Please, I urge you, do not experience the rest of your life without gaining the insight that Dale Carnegie offers to you!
Yes! This book is a guide on human and business relations that is indispensable. It should be required reading in all business colleges.
there are not really caricatures as such.
He is a well modulated narrator. the music between sections is too heavy on the brass and high ranges.
the entire book moved me because it is truly a primmer on good relations between people in business and society.
This book really was a surprise. All current books on this topic are based from these principals. I got a bonus history lesson with all the references from the period the book was written.
That businesses and people from the era really are not that different than we are today.
We all really just want the same things.
No, I have not. but I will now.
My renewed interest in Abraham Lincoln.
Dont let the copyright date scare you away. I read the reviews and bought the book from those along.
haven't read the book. But audio was great.
I have cried enough already. That's why I got this book. I believed influencing was a scam, something inhuman, and against right to freedom. This book has given a new insight.
The examples with the story is most useful
I have learned to be more thoughtful before I do or say
