Even though the principles seem simple. If you really listen they will inspire you to change. Or enforce and encourage things you already do but can do better.
The language and style with which it is written and delivered is a tribute to how well people used to write.
All the stories are brilliant pieces of history and real work examples of how to use the tools he's giving you.
The information was to the point with great examples to clarify the information. It was written a long time ago but the principles still apply. Very positive.
Being positive towards other people's point of view.
Really wish I hadn't even seen this 1, I don't mind rating the audio books, as to assist my fellow listeners from wasting their time and money (BOTH we all know r usually in VERY short supply) Choices will be examined greatly in the future, u can bet on that 1.
Some of the information - which may have seemed more counter-cultural at the time of publishing seems more culturally acceptable now so some of the info sounds almost "well, duh!" But it's still reinforcing to hear it, thought provoking and meaningful in the context in which it is presented. I'm glad I listened and have already started applying some of the guidelines more consciously and consistently.
I'll start practicing the lessons in this book right away. I'm already communicating better with my son and co-workers. This book is invaluable!
this book has a lot of great concepts and techniques to leading a more successful life valuable both in a professional aspect and personal.
Great listen and this book kept me wanting to listen and listen. All the crucial ideas and lessons you learn from this book will change your point of view in life. You will learn how to be a great communicator, leader, and a likable person.
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.
Everyone should read this book - parents and children, managers and employees. Excellent and enjoyable.
"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.
"If you apply it, then the advice really does work"
I was attracted to the book as I wanted a better understanding of people for my job. I certainly didn't expect that it would change my whole approach to relationships, both Business and personal. Using the techniques suggested I have saved money, received more praise/thanks than I used to, improved both work and personal relationships, and have reduced my own frustration & stress. If people baffle you, or you don't get what you want from them - then read this book.
"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!
