This is still a great book with great philosophies, I highly recommend it. It is interesting, easy to listen to and full of useful information on how to live your life.
Who says that this is an outdated book? I said NO! THis is a very very good audiobook... I think the money you paid can not cover the content of this audiobook. 6 stars audiobook~!
The ideas and concepts that Dale Carnegie shares in this book are timeless. This book was suggested to me many years ago, I would have benefitted much sooner if I had taken that suggestion. This is a must read/listen for anyone who would like to improve on ANY relationship business or personal. Thank you Mr Carnegie and Audible.com
Just some guy that likes to listen to things that inspire thought. I've grown tired of the insipidness of music and opinion pieces that now pass for "news". Just looking for inspiration and education.
This book is packed full of, what I would consider, universal truths for interacting with people. There are few books that can convey such a wealth of information that can be used in virtually any setting. For anyone that wants to invest in themselves, surely this is the book for you.
This was an excellent audio book. I not only enjoyed the content and found the principles to be as valuable for today's interactions as they were when the book was written. I found myself listening to it a second time to make sure I didn't miss anything.
Also, my 16 year old found interest in the book as well. He actually hesitated in leaving the car because he wanted to know the rest of what was being said.
I also enjoyed the recurrance of historical facts that I did not have knowledge of before. The time spent listening was worth every minute. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their people skills.
How to Win Friends and Influence People has been around for a long time, and some versions are a little outdated. However this one is relevant, the reading style is appropriately grandfatherly, and the content is memorable. If only kids learned all this is school....
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!
