      My two favorite topics are Baseball and Military History. But my favorite books of all time are Starship Troopers and Ready Player One.

      "I'll listen over and over and over!"

      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.

      "Manipulation"
      What made the experience of listening to How to Win Friends & Influence People the most enjoyable?

      The stories throughout the book used as examples are quite entertaining.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      The author is the main character and following him in the book makes him automatically my favorite.


      What about Andrew MacMillan’s performance did you like?

      Mr. MacMillan did a really good job. It seemed to me to be that perfect blend of performance and staying out of the way of the content.


      What did you learn from How to Win Friends & Influence People that you would use in your daily life?

      Absolutely. This book is chocked full of useful information designed to make life easier,better, and more fulfilling.


      Any additional comments?

      Mr. Carnegie is really good at what he does. Looking back I noticed that while the book does offer what is promised in the title it is not in my opinion the main punch of the lesson. The content is really more about teaching how to be better to our fellow man. I now see there is a wonderful level of manipulation in just about every aspect of this one. In other words he even manipulated me to pick up this book.

      "Essential for LIFE!"
      Any additional comments?

      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!

      "Should be required reading for all!"
      What did you learn from How to Win Friends & Influence People that you would use in your daily life?

      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.


      Any additional comments?

      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.

      "What every person really should read!"
      Where does How to Win Friends & Influence People rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      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.

      "Inspiring and practical"

      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.

      "Could use some updating."

      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.

      "Good, but a little outdated"

      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.

      "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?

      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 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!
