      Story
      "I didn't completely buy into it"
      Is there anything you would change about this book?

      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.


      What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

      I did, however, enjoy de book and I am applying all the principles I learned.


      Did the narration match the pace of the story?

      Yes


      Was How to Win Friends & Influence People worth the listening time?

      Yes


      Any additional comments?

      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".

      "4 out of 5"

      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.

      "A must read anyone who values relationships"

      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.

      "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?

      "timeless advice"

      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

      "Timeless"

      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!

      "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!
