"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
"Great book. Must read if you want to be a better person"
Really loved this book. I had been recommended to read it for a couple years but couldn't get into it. I started listening to the audio and reading at the same time, and finished it within a month! It's great for anyone who wants to become a better person, not only for themselves but for others. It teaches you how to try and understand others, and figure out why people act or say the things they do. It's got great points, great examples and the principles are something I wish to live my life by from now on. I would defo recommend this book to a friend (I already have)
makes you consider what the best ways of dealing with people are in business and in your personal life
"A new perspective on interacting with others"
If i could implement even 10% of the tips in this book I'll be winning!
"A classic...but very old now"
Liked it and read it before a few years ago. Now it sounds so old and all of the examples, while relevant, are of an era that no longer exists.
This is a great book on human psychology. Its shocking how the small things make the biggest differences when dealing with people. This should be the basis of every customer care manual.
Everyone else should read this book. Parents should read it for themselves and to their children. Bosses and their employees should read it. Teachers should take up each point in this book and go over it with their students.
I really mean it when I say everyone should read it.
