The book is filled with scores of stories that do not seem plausible. "I smiled at the cleaning lady on my way in to a sales meeting, I did not get the sale. I came back a few hours later and the cleaning lady had told the manager he should buy from me because I was nice, and I got double the order"... Most of them seem so made up.
I did, however, enjoy de book and I am applying all the principles I learned.
Maybe a revision is now in order, so that the examples reflect this century. Social media is a huge part of our lives, and I don't believe a " :') " is the same as a real one. I wonder if today's version would claim " I LIKED the cleaning lady's wall posting, and when I left, she tweeted about it a couple of times, and the manager logged in and submitted an order for twice the amount".
This book will help you understand how to go about in putting people first and how to make them feel good about themselves. After that is accomplished you will have accessed,a way to be heard, be understood, be recognized. A step in the direction that you will benefit from.
This book offers great approaches in dealing with others.
It does operate in ideal scenarios, neglecting certain negative interactions. I would be interested dealings with specifically unpleasant people, intent on being rude. Not everyone respects kindness and certain approaches taught in the book.
The complaint is a small one, generally this is a resource that will greatly improve interactions with most people.
This book offers insight to great principles that more people should consciously PRACTICE in their daily lives. Definitely something that I'll be listening to on a consistent basis to keep me mindful of how to be an effective communicator and reiterate leadership qualities...
I'm a Real Estate Agent, and it is important for me to learn from the experts and keep myself motivated and make my days count!
I have read this book 7 times and continue to learn new ways in "How To Deal With People", I read this book for the first time 27 years ago, I should have done what they recommend in it, read this book once a month, my life would had been so much better, but there is never to late to start again, I love this book! I recommend it to anyone who wants to get ahead in life... Not enough say about it...fabulous reading!
A must-read for managers and anyone who values human relationships. the world would be a much friendlier and more productive place if everyone would adhere to these values and concepts.
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?
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!
"Everyone should listen!"
This is a great book not only for the subject matter, but also the excellent narration.
While this book was written several decades ago, the principles are still as relevant now as they were back then. Some may say some of what Carnegie writes is common sense, but one could say the same thing about many self help books.
I have used many of the tips and techniques in the book and am enjoying a more comfortable time at work. Well worth a try!
