      "classic and timeless"

      Even years after it was famous, there is so much to learn or relearn from this book. The book is so famous as to almost to be a cliche. However, failing to read it because one knows the general premise was almost a mistake I made. I wish I had read this long ago, and I will start from chapter 1, and go through the entire book again now. The lessons in this book are just as important now as when it was written, and they may be more necessary today. If you were thinking of picking this up because you had heard of it, do it now! Your world will be a better place for having read this book and used even a few of the principles.

      Well written, best common sense approach to life on how human beings should treat one another! Our world would be a much better place if people would follow these principles!
      The narrator did an amazing job! His voice was pleasant and clear. I hope to find more books that he has done.

      Even "nice" people need to listen. Includes the manners we need to be successful and well liked. I was pleasantly surprised.

      "Practical advise that is mostly ignored by people."

      Great advise given to you in small stories about famous successful people. I'll be using the advise regularly. It was a good listen.

      "A Classic Read!"

      The principles in this book are still valid for the 21st century. While technology is moving at faster pace than any one person can keep up with, man's emotions are the same today as they were 100, 200+ Years ago.

      "Great book..."
      Where does How to Win Friends & Influence People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      I learned many techniques for quelling adversity! In addition the stories were educational and priceless. If you would like to upgrade your social skills, this book is worth consideration.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      The narrator was easy to follow...which is a gift in the world of audiobooks.

      "Life changing"

      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.

      "True Classic"

      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.

      "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?

      "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.

      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!

      "Good book, SHAME ON THE PRICING!"

      This is one of those classic books that might have a life-changing effect on you. As a motivational material, it doesn't rely on fancy and marketing-based techniques that might seem artificial. Dale Carnegie mostly uses a basic ideology to help the reader, mostly based on his own experience and on successful people's life stories. Perhaps it is due to this level of authenticity that makes these Carnegie books essential. They might have been followed by a whole genre of self-help books with questionable use, but when Carnegie almost single-handedly created the genre, he had to rely on advise that really influenced people. It was actually surprising to discover, how many successful friend of mine admitted to have a strong influence from Carnegie's books. Please, for your own sake, read them both!
