The information in the book was common knowledge but uncommon practice. I believe that we all could use a refresher on such a topic every so often.
I found the narrator to be clear and easy to understand even when the tape was sped up. He also had a tone that made the book enjoyable, which to me is as important as the former.
Listening to this book helped me realize how I viewed life and how others viewed it. The way I treated people was so unkind and harsh at times. I was queen of criticism and it never came out nicely. I will eternally be grateful for this book as it has changed my life and I hope to apply this new found knowledge to create long lasting friendships and business relations.
I wish I'd have read this yeas ago. The book is old but all of the content is relevant. I've recommended this book to about 10 people already. If you do one thing today; buy this book!
Good advice if you are in an environment and frame of mind to apply. In today's work environment, the principals that Carnegie teaches are very difficult, if not impossible to practice due to the cut throat, high pressure and dog eat dog nature of the corporate workplace. I always strive to be a better person, and consider the other persons position, but it's hard to say the least!
