Really enjoyed this book and the suggestions provided in it. Despite it being older most of the principles discussed are still relevant today. It does seem to get a bit repetitive in its examples of the principles in use.
When I worked for the university I checked the book version out from their library. The book was hard to get into. I decided to try it out on here. Love how they put the music in certain parts! it made the book way easier to catch onto.
What I particularly liked about this book is that the concepts are so obvious, and easy to relate to. This book does a great job making you aware of the tactics you can employ to improve your efficiency as a leader.
While following Carnegie's advice won't steer you wrong, I don't believe it'll have the impact he often claims throughout the book. Nowadays a bit more finesse might be needed to 'Win friends and influence people'.
I loved the part where he suggests to business owners to give the phone numbers of previous customers to potential clients so they can get reviews of the business. That was a different time!
This book taught me so much and will be refering it to many other people! I do belive that someone needs to come out with the exact same version but with modern refrences (if you are not familiar with 19th and 20th century history it might be difficult to know who some of the stories are about). However it was over all a 5 on my scale and belive that everybody should read it and actualy pay attention to it. The srories are fascinating and it keeps you intuned to the book throughout the entire thing! Thank you for wrighting such an amazing read!

It surely discusses matters that would lead to personal development, bigger perspective and promotes the right attitude.
You can directly apply the knowledge onto real life and test its wonders! You'll be shocked by how little can give you so much. I believe that every person already knows whats in the book, the author just keeps on reminding us to use then and supplements the efficiency of adopting such a practice with historical and real-life facts.
This book is amazing. It gives you examples of how people have managed different situations successfully and unsuccessfully. It explains the ways to influence people without being false but just being nice. I wish I had listed to this book 20 years ago. I have been captivated. I find myself unconsciously changing my behaviour, what a difference it has made when working with my staff or playing with my children.
"An American Classic"
It is important to say that Old Dale?s book does exactly what it says on the tin and really does work. However,read from the point of view as a work of narrative fiction, this book also functions perfectly well and is hugely enjoyable. It presents as a work of early twentieth century Americana as much as the novels of Scott Fitzgerald or Upton Sinclair and presents a picture of American Society and in particular American corporate life that will be very familiar to anyone who has either worked with or visited the United States. I kept returning time and time again to a mental picture of an American corporate mentor of mine ? comfortable in his late middle age with all the assumptions of middle class life and, no doubt, many of its frailities?and heard his voice speaking from within these pages. ?How to win friends? informs so much of American Literature ? John Updike and Richard Yates are two particular but not exclusive examples ? so the book also becomes a valuable work of reference to the modern American psyche and the cultural revolution that has and is taking place in that great country.
This is one of those books that you will hear people talking about and this is also one of those books that it took me 30 years to get round to reading. I wish that I had done so earlier. This book has greatly improved my outlook on life and I can handle situations in a far slicker and more helpful way than before. excellent book, I would recommend it to everyone.
Everyone should read this book - parents and children, managers and employees. Excellent and enjoyable.
"I tried to be cynical...."
...but after reading this book I realise that most of my failings in business and personal life are easily-explained. Within a week I have already seen positive changes in my relationships with people. It can't be this easy can it?
this book is timeless. it offers great insights and examples of human behaviour. the only criticsm would be that it mainly deals with office and business. otherwise a great suggestion from a friend
One of the most important non-fiction books in your life. Whether you are self development junkie or not you have to read it/listen to it. The earlier in your life the better. Not sure why I was not introduced to it earlier in school...
This book is inspirational and still as amazingly relevant today as when it was written about 80 years ago!
People skills are understated and this book helps you realise how important they really are.
You must listen to this book!
This book should be used in schools to show people how to deal with each other. Absolutely fantastic!
"Everyone should listen!"
This is a great book not only for the subject matter, but also the excellent narration.
While this book was written several decades ago, the principles are still as relevant now as they were back then. Some may say some of what Carnegie writes is common sense, but one could say the same thing about many self help books.
I have used many of the tips and techniques in the book and am enjoying a more comfortable time at work. Well worth a try!
