While there were no surprises, the book is full of pleasant stores and positive reinforcement that helps me stay in the right mindset while interacting with people.
I would probably prefer to have read this. I didn't love the narration and sometimes there were too many anecdotes that I would have preferred to skip over. The high levels tips were great, but sometimes he "beat a dead horse" with all of the examples.
Even if this book has been written a long time ago, it is perfectly valid for today s human relationships! Nice to listen to, entertaining and quite precise to the main points of what matters in Human relations!
I've heard a lot of high praise about this one. And of course, the hype made me less interested in it and I'd put off getting to this one. I finally decided to check it out and am very pleased. This book is full of stories of historical figures' experiences with interacting with other people. Their failures and successes, as well as their thoughts and paradigms.
The content and the dictation by dale Carnegie himself is just amazing. I went through all 8 hours so quickly because it was so entertaining even after reading the same book twice already.
This book provided invaluable information to build a strong communication base that can cross all types of social and economical barriers. From CEOs to the cashier at your local grocery store, this can help you strengthen your friendships and establish new ones, to becoming a better wife, husband, son, daughter or person.
Amazing book that helps you to know how to interact with others! Wish I'd listened to as a young woman and wish there was a kids version!
