loved it. I needed to hear this. I've read many books snd this one of the most important.
Marketing Consultant in Birmingham
Yes it did!
On my teens I was angry of the world for whatever reason
Maybe is because I listen to a lot of angry music (heavy rock and stuff)
And one day at the gym a guy name Chris invited me to a business meeting, it was an amway business meeting, don't judge me just yet, it sounded good so I joined,
They give me two books to read, rich dad poor dad and how to win friends and influence people, yes this book.
It took me for ever to finish reading the books, then Mike, Chris's friend said, what ever goes in your head (as an watch hear or read) will come out of your mouth,
Well he was right, as of today I have read this book like fifty times, and almost every week I get offered a job from a stranger; come and work for me,
You really know how to talk to people, they say... my secret is... I read this book many many times, and thanks to knowing how to win friend and influence people I can now make more money than I ever dreamed of making, or get out of a ticket or what ever challenge that involves dealing with people. Thank you Dale Carnegie (in the heavens) and thank you Chris. Just get the book and read it or LISTEN to it at least once a year. That alone will make you a better human being.
Ever since I heard about this book I wanted to give it a read. I am a very outgoing person and love talking to people so I figured it was time to give this book a try and see what I could learn from it.
So the advices and guidelines on how to talk to people might seem obvious to some, it is a testament to the book itself. Through modern media we are all used to charismatic characters and more often than not they all use techniques that are explained here. The examples are good and I learned quite a bit, and even though I already used most of its teachings, I got new perspectives wanting to try new approaches.
With that said, it is unfortunately aging. Every point has a story attached to it which at times feel like the author was more worried about selling the book rather than getting his point across ("by using these teachings, this person became the most prolific person in his field. Who was this person? Abraham Lincoln!" Not a real example, of course, just to get an idea). It isn't as often to actually turn me off the book.
So for anyone who wants to brush up their social skills, it is a great book. I definitively had a good time reading it.
Neurosurgical resident-in-training. I listen during commute, while I workout, and when I draw.
I think I hardly need to say much about this book, as it pretty much has raving reviews all around, but this is one of my favorites. It doesn't drivel on about each topic like other self-help books where the author just goes on and on... even when the idea can be summed up in the subtitle. This book gives you just the right amount of examples and then summarizes the main point before moving on to the next concept. It's a nicely succinct and compact book that can be relistened in a short period of time. And its usefulness... well, let's just say we all need to be more attentive, and as we become better students of this book, so will we become better friends and influencers in life.
Right now I have been enjoying biographies. Maybe if I learn about admirable people a little of their character will rub off.
This book is better than most self help books. I think most people will learn at least one good tactic for working with people.
If ever there were a book that should be required reading for all of mankind it would be this manual on how to properly interact with others while enjoy our existence despite them and achieving our aims in the process.
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?
"Read every 10 years for an optimal life"
I read this originally well over 30 years ago, and it is one of the books that has profoundly influenced my life. The essence is simply the golden rule: Do as to others as you would be done by. In a world where every one is (whether we like to admit it or not) out for themselves, it is still optimal to be loving and co-operative if you understand that life is essentially win-win: we gain ourselves by giving to others what they most want. And if they only give us back 80% of what they get, we are still both better off, because a lot of what we want (recognition, respect, affection) is FREE. So once this 'enlightened self-interest' gets a hold, out of the crooked stuff that man is made of, we find...we can all be happy! Read it, DC explains it better than I do.
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!
