Celebrating the 75 anniversary of the original landmark bestseller How to Win Friends and Influence People, comes an up-to-the-minute adaptation of Carnegie’s timeless prescriptions for the digital age.
Dale Carnegie’s principles have endured for nearly a century. Since its original publication in 1936, his timeless classic How to Win Friends and Influence People has gone on to sell 15 million copies. Now, introducing new listeners to Carnegie’s words of wisdom, comes How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age, a new guide for a new era.
Dale Carnegie could never have predicted the trajectory that new media would take, and the ways that the simple television screen would be adapted into computers and handheld communication devices. He didn’t know the term “social media” and Facebook was something not even dreamed of in Buck Rogers cartoons. And yet his lessons remain relevant for everyone who communicates online today. In fact, with problems such as cyber bullying and email etiquette, we need Carnegie’s help more than ever. Dale Carnegie and Associates, Inc. has re-imagined Carnegie’s lasting lessons for this difficult digital age, reframing Carnegie’s insights about communication, self-expression, and leadership. This book is a must-have guide for anyone who wants to find success on Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter, and any social media format today and in the future.

I was greatly impressed how concepts that seemed simple and viewed as old fashion were truly relative. They seem even more needed in a world full of digital distraction and device. This book is filled with a wealth of knowledge that if acted upon will empower any one in any relationship to a shared greatness. Do not allow this title to slip away back on a "list to do" but read or listen and be enlighten.
Carnegie has a way of poignantly reminding all of us on the basics of good business. All the etiquette, foundations and graces that we know we ought to be doing are found in this book. It's really about putting others before yourself.
Lots of really helpful and interesting stories to illustrate his thesis. I particularly liked some of the recent additions around social media that this latest edition has included.
It's tough to pull off a good narration on books like this that don't have as much story/narrative but this is well done. Very clear and even, and no awkward or annoying ticks.
I re read this book once a year to remind myself of all the little things that go into building positive relationships with people. I recommend it to anyone who will listen and always hear great feedback.
yes I would recommend this book to my friends. The book was didactic and easy to understand
start to meet more people
Comparing this to the other books I have listened to both here and on CD's and before that Cassette tapes is comparing apples to boulders as they have almost always been novels except for the Communist Manifesto which I bought for research on an economics assignment. The content was fantastic and I got some good parts out of it. I will be re-listening to this as I am not someone who assimilates information quickly. I intend to get the original when I can.
Makes good points of being good to people in an honest way. Something I always try to do but I got some ideas on how to improve myself from this book.
Not really a story being a self-improvement book. Great one though.
No, and it is one I plan on listening to again in shorter bursts. Digesting the information in it is a good idea.
Recommended for anyone.
Yes, I would listen again because I use this material in a class I teach to high school seniors. The information has helped many students learn necessary people skills
I love Dale Carnegie, and his principles and I am astounded how his theories from almost a hundred years are still relevant today, this book helps make the connections of those older more traditional principle and how they could apply in this day and age.
