I fantasize about a world where all high-schools have an added required class called Life.. with all the course time dedicated to the study and dissection of this masterpiece by Dale Carnegie.
Carnegie majestically aligns the principles of life and business, showing clearly that strong moral values are not in opposition to optimal business practices. The examples and stories outlined here have stuck with me for years, and I have used them on numerous occasions to make points and sway an audience. Andrew MacMillan's voice accurately mirrors and portrays the essence of what is being conveyed.
If you never have or never care to read business books, make an exception here!
The most important understanding to come by is that people want to feel important and they want to talk about themselves and when you learn to make them feel important they will want to do things for you.
I have read this book three time in my life. After each time my life takes an upswing. My relationships improve; my professional life improves; my financial situation improves; but mostly I am a happier person.
I have listened to this audiobook 4 times over now. I run a home care agency and being on call 24 hours a day, and supervising care services for over 350 clients and staff members. I realize that you cannot please everyone, but you can control your reaction to situations, and diffuse more conflicts than provoking them. My life has lit up since listening to it. I loved it.
It's as if this were written just last month. I had to keep reminding myself that my mother took this course in the 1940's. Very practical about human nature, and it makes you feel good to listen to it. I kept hearing my mom's words and realized how much the Dale Carnegie approach shaped her philosophy of life. It gave me insight as to why she was successful with people and why people loved her so much. You might be interested to know that her last words were, "I'm so happy." Although I read this book many yeaars ago, this re-read (re-listen) was well worth the time. If all of us lived by these ideas, we'd have a much more communicative, productive and pleasant world.
I have the book and read it every few years. This is just plain old excellent information for anyone who just wants to be a better person. It is great for personal or professional life.
I have read both the original version and several of the rewrites of the paper versions and this audio book could definitely use a similar face lift. For one thing, the use of the rifts of loud classical music get pretty annoying as time goes on. In addition, the reader doesn't spend enough effort to emphasize the key points at the end of each chapter. Remembering those points is essential if you are going to get anything out of the book. I highly recommend that you hit Wikipedia before you listen and print out the list of key points listed there before you listen. That will help you get the most out of the book. This however may be one of those books that just don't translate well into an audio version.
It was good, but a the reader sounded like my grandfather telling me about the old days. Content is good, but not as relevant for today's higher tech world markets.
Hello Everyone! This is an audio book to purchase! Dale even mixes in some great humorous stories! Please do not pass this audio book up! Thanks for reading!
this book is an example of the timeless lesson that life has bestowed to some for the rest of us to follow. It's only drawback is it's dated examples and comparisons. These are very small downfalls, especially as the author wrote his guidelines during a time we only read about ourselves. This creates a detachment of sorts, however, with some understanding, it is simple to take the lessons here and apply them to life.
This is a great book on human psychology. Its shocking how the small things make the biggest differences when dealing with people. This should be the basis of every customer care manual.
Everyone else should read this book. Parents should read it for themselves and to their children. Bosses and their employees should read it. Teachers should take up each point in this book and go over it with their students.
I really mean it when I say everyone should read it.
Comes across as the result on thorough and extensive research - the basis of which lots of modern day people management literature seems to be drawn...
Excellent book! Helped me learn more about the subject! Highly recommend to everyone !!
This is one of the best books I have come across. I respect Dale for the effort put in years of research. I will have to go through it again and Internalize it further. Am sure my way of handling people will change. I have already changed the way I look at myself and others.
"Everybody should get this book!!"
This is probably one of the few books everybody really should get - not only for business but generally for life. Significant content that is told to the reader based on many enjoyable examples and stories. Definitely hands-on advice and very practicable!
"Interesting. A bit naive."
Interesting points raised in the book. Some of the principles would not work in our modern times anymore.
"one of the best and life changing books"
one of the best and life changing books. I recommend it for everyone, especially managers
"This is one of the best books I've ever read. "
Such a great book! It helped me to increase my leadership skill and understand better human psychology.
"A good listen"
Although the book is quite old, the techniques explained in this audio book are very easy to use and some of them are just common sense that we would normally use in our every day life but some how we don't . The book sometimes repeats it's self in places, but this could be to reinforce some of the principals raised in the book. It is well laid out and easy to understand. I'm going to listen to it again just to take in the principals more deeply. The book is narrated well and I would recommend getting this book.
