I've always found this book to be a practical guide to working with people. Many of the principles have been proven by neuroscience and modern psychology. However the references are extremely dated and may make it unaccessible to some people. Also, because of the advances in science some things mentioned are wrong or no longer supported scientifically. However, for it's few faults the recording was well read and is always a pleasure to listen to. Written not dictated.
I highly recommend this book to anyone in the business world. It highlights the importance of being an honest person, treating others with respect, and to regard effective communication as top priority. Great read!
I read this wonderful book nearly 3 decades ago. I had a long road trip coming up and decided to listen to it on audiobook. It was great to hear, and relearn these timeless lessons.
Can see why this book has been a best seller for decades. The world would be a better place if everyone adopted these principles. I can now see that the leaders I've admired have used these principles and as a result are highly respected and distinguished. Even if you have good people skills, it's a must read.
The readers tone is a bit boring making it easy to switch off at times, other than that this audiobook is up there with the best of them
I was annoyed to realize that this is some updated version of the original book that was published in 1936. For the most part, the advice and stories are timeless. However, when there was a story about Stevie Wonder, I felt annoyed and wished that it had been clear that this unabridged version wasn't the same as the original book. (No disrespect to Stevie Wonder, but he didn't release his first two albums until 1962, several years after this book was published.)
