Just the work put into researching this book makes it worth so much. Thousands of pieces of research.
He really hits the nail square immediately, explaining the reasons why we have such a hard time relating to others and why we don't at other times.
I recommend this book to ANYONE.
I loved this book. Its alittle dated as far as examples but it was a joy silencing to it on my way to work. The concepts are still valuable and I enjoyed the voice of the narrator. Its worth listening to.

If you are in business, this is a must read. I got more value from this book than from earning my MBA. Oakum’s Razor is the best way to sum this book. It teaches you to get out of your own way, so you can hear others.
This audio book is very knowledgeable and gives real world examples. My only negative comment is the narrator-I get this book was written decades ago, but does that mean the narrator needs to sounds like when the book was written? The significant content is sometimes missed by the borring tone of the narrator. I found myself drifting off because his voice and delivery could not keep my attention. Overall the content does outweigh any reason not to listed (or read) this book. It is one of the most influential book ever written for professionals and people in general.
You will find this book on the shelf of EVERY SINGLE SUCCESSFUL PERSON of the past few generations. It is a must read and I believe it should be part of every High School curriculum. Awesome and inspiring! I learned so much from this book 20 years ago and re-read it every now and then to learn even more.
Dale understands people and interactions. We is able to clearly articulate how to deal with people and get into their hearts. I have used his ideas on how to meet and treat people to build relationships on a personal and business nature.
