Yes. Actually I MUST listen to it again. I've read this book for the first time something like 8 years ago. Having it on a audio book is awesome because this is a book to be re-read every year.
A classic everyone should read over & over again. I've read it & listened to it several times & I will listen to it several more.
Excellent book that really reinforces many underlying principles and techniques in dealing and communicating with people. The narrator is really outstanding; he makes you feel as if you truly are listening to an old wise man speaking with timeless wisdom and rigorous experience. If you really listen and ingest the information that is preached here, and remain true to the principles it'll really help guide you in a positive direction in almost all of your relationships.
It is the quintessential book on entrepreneurial thinking!
So many life truths spoken in an easy to understand manner.
Hope you will NOT be put off by the age of the material.
Sorry it is de first one
Everything, it is an action book and you can use evrething, begining by been grateful to others
I am going to listingn to it again, thanks
the audio edition is for people who needs to multitask. since reading takes up a lot of time for concentration, I highly recommend this especially when ur stuck in a traffick where reading a book is a no-no.
leadership and people skills, personal development
I think the emotions that the narrator expressed.
yes, about theodor roosevelt and abraham lincoln
its the best! Congartulations!!!
THis is a very insightful book.
made me think about the things I say
always be positive
Be nice, don't criticize, remember names, make people feel important and think that you care. Not rocket science. The anecdotes that support his thesis are ridiculous - i.e. mentally ill people are insane because they are selfish and just want attention. Children are bed wetters because they haven't been given the motivation to grow up. I couldn't even finish listening despite the brevity of this book. It's the first audio book I've regretted purchasing.
Yes, it was very informative. The book is in two parts. Part one is how to make friends. Basically it teaches you how to remember to be friendly and have proper manners at all times. The second chapter is about influencing people by using reversed psychology and the Aristotelian technique. I used it experimentally on my child, my husband and at work and IT WORKS! One thing that I want to just mention is that this book is clearly written for an audience in a different are and overall today we have a little of culture difference that the book of course does not take in to consideration. This is the job of the reader, to take the advice and applied it to today's life circumstances.
It was easy to follow and gave a lot of good applications to the material.
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.
"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?
"How can it still make sense?"
But it just does, I've gone through life noticing the odd thing here and there and presuming great insight but only to find that Dale Carnegie has got there already.
I bought this thinking it would be a cheesy reminder of the way we used to do business, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It all makes perfect sense and resinates today in all walks of life.
Well worth a listen.
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.
"The Foundation For A Successful Business"
Foundation [for] business success
The books gives the reader an insight into how to handle all business situations, its a must read.
How to make friends and influence people, may not be the best name for the book as it implies the reader wants something, as if in the book they will learn some trick out how to manipulate people for person gain.
Instead the book explains in great detail how to handle every situation imaginable in such a way that it makes the other person genuinely feel good about themselves. It explains how to help others reach their full potential. It explains how to turn around negative situations to positive ones for the benefit of all around. It explains how to leave a room better off for having you in it.
If one can master the principles outlined in the book you will surely know how to make friends and influence people, you will also know how to add value to the people in encounter, and leave a lasting impression.
I am one of those people firmly against anything 'self-help' but even I cannot deny just how great this book was. Some of the advice is just common sense but it is put in such a simple and eloquent way that you can't help but love it.
Really great read. Will recommend to everyone
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!
