I have not read the print version. However, it's narrated by Andrew MacMillan. That's enough to have it way better.
Not even sure, it's kind of one of a kind.
The start of the audiobook, literally right to the end.
There were many, too many to count. Too many bookmarks just to give myself inspiration on the daily.
You don't need to read this review to buy this book, there are already dozens of others that'll agree and say the same thing. My god, it's simply amazing. The narrator? one of the best I've heard. And to be honest? at the end of the day it's all tips that you know. The best part of it? They're tips that you've forgotten, or don't nearly apply enough. this book is more than a book, it really feels like a course. It challenges you to go out and apply the principles in the book, and did I mention how amazing the narrator is? Yeah.
Buy this book. You won't regret it.
The principles in the book are true and helpful. The music, audio, and examples used in the book did feel old and a little out dated.
I think the information shared in the book should be followed. It should be taught to children at early ages but our world is unfortunately moving toward metrics to drive changes in attitude and behaviors not the things taught in the book like empathy, open mindness, and humility.
We need more leaders in the world that are humble and kind. That's what this book is teaching!
This is a book I always meant to read. Well I finally did and it stood up to the reviews. unfortunately the information in the book has almost become common knowledge do to the proliferation of the book. but still a great reminder of all the skills the author brought to light. it also contains some unexpected entertainment elements.
I've always found this book to be a practical guide to working with people. Many of the principles have been proven by neuroscience and modern psychology. However the references are extremely dated and may make it unaccessible to some people. Also, because of the advances in science some things mentioned are wrong or no longer supported scientifically. However, for it's few faults the recording was well read and is always a pleasure to listen to. Written not dictated.
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?
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.
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...
"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!
