      "Glad I read it"

      I think this is a book everyone who is around people should read. Not just leaders...everyone! There is a wealth of information on how to talk to people and how to be respectful of others. The audio version was maybe a little long as I started to lose interest about 1/2 way through. I will definitely listen to or read the book again to pick up any ideas I might have missed.

      "A book that changed my life forever"
      What did you love best about How to Win Friends & Influence People?

      The fact that even the most famous people in the world are also just like us but have a much better, in fact, world's best approach to other people and their behaviours.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Win Friends & Influence People?

      The example of a kid who got a new bed and pants and by treating him like a man from then he never wet the bed.


      What does Andrew MacMillan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

      He has a great and very intriguing voice. I don't think even Dale (if alive) would have been read this book as good as Andrew.


      If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

      Key principles to fix yourself.


      Any additional comments?

      I would love to read the book again and again if I start forgetting the way I should behave and treat people.

      "Useful but dated"

      Great book with useful tops or "principles" on basically how to be nicer towards orhers.

      I would love to read an updated version of thus book with today's social culture and today's real life examples.

      Still this book is a valuable asset to become a better person.

      "For people who want to be good to their fellow man"

      This is not a book that will explain how to fool people out of their money nor how to get an unfair advantage. It's not quick fix and it's not easy to implement the changes needed.

      Although it only contains anecdotes, the book fits with the research I am familiar with as well as many personal experiences.

      In short this book is for people who want to be better towards the people in their life and by virtue of being a good person be rewarded in kind.

      I'd recommend it to anyone.

      "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.

      "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.

      "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.

      "Still Relevant"

      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?

      "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

      "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!

      "Timeless"

      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...
