This book is really good. If you mastered half of the suggestions on this book your life would be amazing. A must read for anyone wanted to become a better person.
This is an extremely helpful book. This book will help you refocus your efforts on your relationships. It will give you the tools to dramatically improve your interactions with the people around you. I recommend that you read Benjamin Franklin's autobiography after reading this book. (His book is a very short read). I think the strangest thing about this book is how easy it is to influence people with a simple complement. The audio quality of the tape itself is good.
great info, but the examples get old after a while. I tried reading the book years ago and had the same problem. I'll save you time and money...Always focus on what the other person wants.
This is the only book that people should read regarding managing people, leading people and selling to people. All other books on the market just reiterate the topics in this book.
If you are interested in improving your skills in leadership, mediation, sales, influence, or human relations, this book is required reading. Is the book dated? Yes and no. It's examples and quotations might be seen as a bit of a history lesson, but there is nothing wrong with that as long as the principles hold true. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and have already recommended it to friends.
I don't think his views applies to ALL situations today in this modern age, but he has some great suggestions that I still think about everyday now. I think one problem I had was how he suggests not to speak up against someone's view - sometimes I think it is important to express an opposite view. Some of his ideas are a bit too comformist for me. However, I still think it's well worth the listen. I certainly wish more people at my job would listen to this!
Great narrator, excellent content. Inspiring ideas and wonderful, down to earth examples. Very helpful and insightful in regards to human nature and business and personal interactions. I finished it once and I'm already listening to it again.
Just a few good points: listen to what people have to say and be nice to them no matter what. Having to go through hours of doubtufl anecdotal evidence to get to this point is hard work. Interestingly, I can now tell which one of my colleagues has read this book --they are very lavish in their praise (need I say more?), just like Dale Carnegie suggested.
I've read the book and enjoyed it and find the audio to be enjoyable as well. Without being a religious book I found many of the lessons to be based upon principles from the Bible. Can't go wrong with that in my opinion.
