A wannabe riot.
Timeless advice, a classic for a reason. A little repetitive at times, though I guess that is the point: internalize the messages and it will greatly improve your interactions with people. Highly recommend to anyone who is in a leadership position, or just wanting to improve relations with others. Also, greatly enjoyed Andrew MacMillan's narration; his voice is as timeless as the advice given in the book!
In fact I have twice already. Great content
The article of the Father writing to his son. And the history of our past leaders who figured how to deal with their anger and make it a win win for both parties with out criticizing.
worth the time and money!
Dr. Carnegie's book continues to provide advice that is tried and true.
You cannot isolate one principle and moment from another regarding its value.
Being human - interpersonal skills at their best.
Should be part of every curriculum from medical/dental to leadership to sales to teaching - applies everywhere.
I enjoyed the thought processes and the stories of how people who became a success did it. This book is a great manual from some of the greats...
The historical content
The best way to win friends and influence people is by being a good listener...
Everyone should read this book. The audible version is good. The narrator sounds like he could be Carnegie. The mini-stories throughout are great in themselves.
let us be thankful for the fools but for them we would not suceeed. M Twain. I am a fan of Zombie books. Im a family man with two great kids
I listened. I remembered, and i applied. Guess what it works.Its not there as a bag of tricks to get what you want from people. Its meant as a life changing approach. And believe me it is!
I know i know its been around for donkeys years i remember being told when i was a kid how my Dad read it when he was younger and suggested i do to. 40yrs later i thought what the hell i will try it, i am so glad i did, and you will be too. Sorry Dad should have done it sooner.
Yes! For positive reinforcement.
To many to name.
A great tone for this kind of book.
Never forget to respect peoples thought and needs.
I would love to try to take this book in over one weekend.
The book is great, narration is like english literature.... Old. I even fell asleep behind the wheel listening to the book, not kidding. Everything is great and yes, I learned exactly what the book title reads...
He makes great points that will help you accomplish your goals in buying this book, but could and should get to these points faster. The analogies are outdated and slow. If this were a physical book, it'd be OK to skip some anecdotes without missing the original point. The reader's voice is dull. That said, the points that ARE made are very useful and still very relevant today.
The information was timeless.
I really enjoyed the advice this book has to offer. The information is timeless!
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!
