      "SUPER boring."
      What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

      Just a narrative about how he got to where he did in writing the book. Anecdotal stories are about the author. I wish I could return it. I listened to about half-way through. Couldn't take it any longer, and I love self-help books. I figure if I learn one great thing, the whole book is worth it. I can't say that about this book. Maybe an abridged would be better.


      Would you ever listen to anything by Dale Carnegie again?

      Maybe - but I would look at a hard-copy first to see if it is a good read.


      What three words best describe Andrew MacMillan’s performance?

      Clear, monotone, and understandable.


      What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

      Disappointment.


      Any additional comments?

      Is there a way that I can return the book? I hated it.

      "As relevant as ever"

      The fact that the examples are dated is precisely what shows us the constant nature of human nature. The lessons that can be learned from this book are invaluable and crucial to navigating the world we live in. Coming from a corporate environment, I can easily see how every single one of the recommendations can directly be applied in my work environment. Self-help has always seemed like a wishy-washy, unnecessary field of literature, to me. Works such as this one show me how wrong I have been in my pre-emptive judgment of an entire genre.
      It is clear to me why this book has survived the test of time.

      Great stories, but hard to tell the difference between personal stories or other's stories sometimes.

      "Go slower"

      Great information, but was read too fast. It would be easier to grasp the concepts, if reader slows down. Will definitely listen again.

      "a little old fashioned but timeless nonetheless"

      I've read the book twenty years ago the first time. and this book still proves to be profitable for my life in career and relationships. i encourage all to read this book at least once and continue to follow up with the audio book as a reminder

      "Life changing"

      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.

      "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.

      "True Classic"

      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.

      "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?

      "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.

      "timeless advice"

      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

      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...

      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!
