"My favourite Book"
I heard it a dozen of times! I even memorise what he is going to say from many random points in the book! Yet, memorising is one thing and practicing is another. This book becomes a guide book for you to know the fundamentals of genuinely winning new friends and influencing people in a positive and diplomatic way.
Simple yet effective techniques explained with a tonne of historic examples. This is the kind of book that you should keep coming back to when struggling to deal with people in any capacity.
This book is an essential read for everyone. It has already helped me in my thinking and relationships and I am looking forward to reading it again as I am sure it will take a while to learn this essential principles. Read it!
"a must listen!"
I have learnt so much from this book and can't wait to put what i have learnt into practise. It teaches conversational/problem solving skills for everyday life. I would listen to it again.
"incredible book that I think everyone should try."
excellent narrative and truly enriching. I can honestly say that I have corrected some of my wrong behaviour, improving my approach to problems following listening to this book. I can't say the same about many books. highly recommended
"For Results people"
When we think about results we think about numbers and figures. This book is great at Sharon how to get the results with out being down people's necks! A Great read/listen helped me a lot
A few life skills which will come in handy. History lesson and also realisation all humans have same problems.
"Good audio book."
I think this book is a good read, however it talks mostly about people in higher powers adapting to the 'working class' and the respect they received, by being kind and nice. It has some really great points and suggestions about making friends and influencing people. Some of the concepts, I don't agree with; example, you have to be really nice to everyone, agree with anything, even in an argument, smile all the time and be interested in what others has to say rather than what you have to say. Whilst this is certainly true, sometimes you need to, for example, argue your point strategically rather than agree.
Still, its a very good book with some nice examples. The narrator is excellent and I enjoyed listening to the stories and suggestions, so overall, I recommend reading it.
I would have focused more on less authoritative people to illustrate. If the president was so lovely to all his workers and knows them all by names, well, obviously, he is going to gain a lot of respect, but for the average Joe, to smile all the time and knowing everyone by name etc. May be treated differently.
I think that the narrator is excellent, he brings this book to life. The examples in this book are also very good and I have taken some of the suggestions on board, one example is that I ask questions about the other person talking, rather than trying to give examples from my own personal aspect.
Good listen - I recommend this audio book
