although. written many years ago this book is still relevant. it's a classic that.will change your outlook and the way you view relationships and handle people. I use info from this book often and to know surprise. ...I usually get what I'm after.
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!
