I really enjoyed listening to this is my first audiobook. Well performed and informative. I very much enjoyed listening to the presenter. Well, the book itself seemed to be interesting. It turned out to be more based on analogies and stories rather than psychological or academic insights. It was still worth the investment of time.
It would benifit each person to read this book. Yes, if each person on the nation read this book and took its teachings to heart, we would fix many of our current social dysfunction in just a short time.
lovely book would love to hear it again.
it should taught in schools.
In a world were many people don't know how to interact in an agreeable way, this book would be and should be read or in my case listened to so as to know how to talk and treat one another. Moreover it shows why it is that when we go contrary to how we would like to respond or act we can come out of a situation with the results that we wanted in the first place! I appreciate that at the end it noted the key to the effectiveness of this book which is to be sincere. I will be listening to this again and sharing this with my family for all our benefit.
This book has touched me in ways I can't imagine. I wish there was some way to thank the author personally. Mr MacMillan's tone resonated the character of each individual superbly and made the stories come to life. I found myself listening with the intensity I used to listen to radio mysteries with when I was a kid; often rewinding to make sure I'd caught the point. This story may not be current but it is timeless. Again thank you!
This book is what I've heard it to be, a piece of material that you will want to have in all mediums available and priceless in its value of values. Some principles outline I already made use of, and for those it lets me know how I can do better in their execution. And for all others I was able to see how often I would be doing something wrong. More importantly if you listen to the this book intently you can't help but think about the similar situations where you know there would have been a better outcome had this information been learned prior. It is certain that I will review this book a few more times as I grow my company and embark on new levels of networking. The principles laid out herein are nothing less of a requirement. Some may seem almost common sense, but you realize that they are not... Or else you wouldn't have read the book.
I recommend listening at 1.3x speed
Buy the book.
4 leaders and followers alike great examples to you at home and in the workplace adults children men women all can benefit from this book
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.
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.
"Read every 10 years for an optimal life"
I read this originally well over 30 years ago, and it is one of the books that has profoundly influenced my life. The essence is simply the golden rule: Do as to others as you would be done by. In a world where every one is (whether we like to admit it or not) out for themselves, it is still optimal to be loving and co-operative if you understand that life is essentially win-win: we gain ourselves by giving to others what they most want. And if they only give us back 80% of what they get, we are still both better off, because a lot of what we want (recognition, respect, affection) is FREE. So once this 'enlightened self-interest' gets a hold, out of the crooked stuff that man is made of, we find...we can all be happy! Read it, DC explains it better than I do.
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!
"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 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
"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!
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...
