This book is classic unfortunately the narrator's voice is hard to deal with. He is wooden and monotone and he should be doing movie trailer voice overs. I have read this book and loved it but not sure I will ever listen to audio version again. I do not recommend this version..
I was stunned for real to hear the preface and first chapter. I was turned off. I guess my mind was numbed by the Freud comment and all that 'we are selfish' talk and generally are nice to people for what's in it for us. Not true. I read Norman Vincent Peales book The Power of Positive Imaging (thinking) and it blows this book out of the water. I read Norman's book 5 times over the years. It's that good. This book by Dale Carnegie might work for some people but it went on and on about how to do or say a kind thing to get what "YOU WANT" from the person. Norman teaches to do the kind things but for genuine purposes. This book leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. So disappointed because I know this book by Dale Carnegie was a success. Oh, well, I'm deflated. I wanted more help and guidance on helping others in a way that I can feel good about myself also not be taught how to have an alterior motive using the person to get ahead. pffftt...to each their own....
Good book on conversational skills. Also beneficial for know-it-alls who presume they know how to have a conversation.
Wish I read this book years ago. The reading is excellent and the content very valuable. The reader's conversational approach enhances retention of the material.
I haven't been able to finish this yet. It's tedious and rather pompous. The examples are dated.
Interesting that Steven Covey, almost by name, discusses this book as a BAD example (7 habits). In Covey's book he specifically directs the reader NOT to work on the outer shell but to look inward. I'm not sure this book is ONLY working on the outer shell but it does seem to be the focus.
This is a good book, and the basic principals are still valid, but the basics are so far out-of-date, they are almost not worth bothering with anymore.
I know it's a self-help classic and all that, but it's so hard for me to relate to the author's outdated examples...
Hard to listen to. I was bored but there's some useful stuff in there if you force yourself to listen
