It is great in both versions, hardcover and audiobook. Audiobook is just more accessible. I listen to it while I work. It is great !!
I would compare it " the secret" which also has taught me a lot of positive things but this one is by far the best book I've listened to.
I love his voice. Its not boring or tiring. The intonation he reads the book with is just amazing. A+++
This book made me realize many things. One of which would be that people love themselves more than anyone in the world and if you give them what they want so bad you win!!
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to win friends. This stuff really works. Listen to it and make it happen.
I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world. I am into self improvement audio books.
At the top, a must have. I listen over and over.
I got me to see that people in general are basically interested in the same thing. They want to matter. To mean something. To be important.
I'm not sure but this one will always be a classic and a must have for any self improvement library.
Agree with your adversary. and then draw him close and make him your friend.
Love it, a real classic and a must have.
The information provided is one of the most practical and easy to apply. It's not new, but we forget about it as life goes on.
The Art of Negotiating the Best Deal provides similar information, but is more more managerial, university level, while How to Win Friends is more social.
This is my first Andrew MacMillan performance, and it was a pleasure listening to him. I linked his voice to the author.
Yes, and on two occasions I fell asleep while listening to it because I did not wanted to stop listening even though I was too tired. I rewinded every time I lost a thought and will listen to it over and over until it becomes part of myself.
We'll, if there were more people who applied what he teaches, this world would be so much nicer.
For its genre, I say the top five, but this my belief.
This has no "characters," many example story of Carnegie's principles to live by when communicating with people.
Andrew, sets a excellent for the book, and it is brought to life. Andrew is easy to listen too, and doesn't put you to sleep.
I have applied many of Mr.Carnegie's principles since listening to it three weeks ago, and they are effective in many situations.
If you are looking for a book on how to improve your communication skills with others, then this is the book you are looking for; it transcends across generations.
Some of my current favorites:
2. Give honest, sincere appreciation.
4. Become genuinely interested in other people.
6. Remember that a person's name is to that person the most important sound in any language.
7. Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.
8. Talk in terms of the other person's interest.
9. Make the other person feel important - and do so sincerely.
11. Show respect for the other person's opinions. Never say, "You're wrong."
15. Let the other person do a great deal of the talking.
17. Try honestly to see things from the other person's point of view.
25. Ask questions instead of giving direct orders.
29. Use encouragement. Make the fault seem easy to correct.
While I was listening to this book, I realized all the principles that people I enjoy working with were employing, and all of the ideas I could utilize more effectively. I am sure I will listen to this book repeatedly throughout the years to get better at working with, managing, and navigating through opportunities.
Seriously, I can't believe I hadn't read this until I was 36. This was one of those books you always heard others talk about, but no one had ever said, "Hey, you really need to read this book!" I might have done that way earlier in my life and saved a lot of heart and head aches.
As a Human Intelligence Collector in the Military, I've been taught and learned many of the principles taught within this book, but there's so much more and it's all right here.
Definitely worth your time, regardless of your present status in life. Although originally published in 1936, it is timeless, not an anachronism.
If you can incorporate what the book covers in your life, you will be amazed. I've been incorporating these concepts on my own, but after listening to the book, it simply refocused everything for me. It also reinforced my understanding on the entire philosophy of simply removing negativity when speaking with, about and to others.
Simple love it.
The narrator added character to this book.
It helped teach me to be a better socializer and employee
This book is great if you're looking for advice on becoming better at conversation. I liked the author's use of successful individuals and life experiences to portray the usefulness of certain gestures. Some instructions in the book seem so obvious when meeting people or talking with people. For example, smile. Smiling is a given when attempting to engage an individual in conversation. However, Carnagie shines a different light on this rule because he gives you examples of the impact of one simple gesture such as smiling. It's all about being successful in your job, family, and social life. This book has helped me become a better person. I look forward to my next interview because I think I will do a much better job.
I really liked the factual information about dealing with people, in a business setting and in any kind of setting. You could apply this to any aspect of your life.
The narrator's voice was alright, but there was this really cheesy trumpet music inbetween chapters and sections that I could not stand.
The tactics for dealing with people on an everyday basis are easily applicable experiments for a better life.
