I read many other books about leadership and influence that were written after this book, and I was amazed to find out that many of the modern ideas on leadership actually came from this book. this was the result of the intensive research that Dale Carnegie and his team have done.
This is a book that will help anyone. The key for me was to sit down and listen. Oft times I do other things and listen and I lose some of the best part of the message.
Thank-you Audible for a wonderful seamless listening experience each and every time.
Not Dale Carnegie-
All the anecdotal rubbish that are clearly exaggerated or poorly made up.
The world would be a better place if Dale Carnegie's 30 principles were taught in schools all around the world.
My only comment is the principles are 1 - 30 and the audio book resets the principle numbers for each section which makes learning the principles very confusing.
The principles should be numbered as such:
Enhance Relationships 1 - 9
Gain Cooperation 10 - 21
Demonstrate Leadership 22 - 30
Instead the audio book numbers them as:
Enhance Relationships 1 - 9
Gain Cooperation 1 - 11
Demonstrate Leadership 1 - 9
I would recommend updating the audio book and numbering the principles 1 - 30.
All the stories from the students that applied these principles
I do not know another book with this subject
He has clear english, my mother thong is spanish and can clearly undertand all what he is saying.
A drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gold.
I read this book I think 20 years ago when my father suggested to me, even today is still interesting and all the principles taught are really worth. I would take all this as my guide when dealing with people.
I have not read the print version.
It was explained in simple terms and used examples we are faced with in all our everyday life.
his is the first one and it was excellent.
Life can be Exciting when you know how.
This book should be studied by every civilized person alive because it teaches siple techniques everyone can use to treat people better and grow as a human being
Listen to over and over
This book is just excelent. If you try the methods and begin to act by the rules and principles Dale gives, You'll nstantly feel the difference. For me, it was lifechanging, because I dont just act like an other man, I feel I am changing.
Solid advice, but I was a bit bored. I guess self-help books are not for me (this was my first). In sum, if you are nice to people and show a genuine interest, Carnegie believes they will be your friend and you will have power over them.
The orchestral interludes were a bit cheesy.
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?
"How can it still make sense?"
But it just does, I've gone through life noticing the odd thing here and there and presuming great insight but only to find that Dale Carnegie has got there already.
I bought this thinking it would be a cheesy reminder of the way we used to do business, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It all makes perfect sense and resinates today in all walks of life.
Well worth a listen.
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.
"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!
