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.

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.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. The information is simple to digest and relevant in today's social media driven world. That said, it was hard to discern what bits of info were from Carnegie's original book vs information that was added aside from the specific examples citing technology that didn't exist when the book was written.
Petkoff did a solid job making this feel like a conversation and not a lengthy narrative.
Tell us about yourself!
Took the course and it had a big impact on how I view myself and others ever after.
Takes the 21 golden rules and gives updated examples. Can't believe that he originally wrote the book 100 years ago and how the material is still fresh and applicable.
I haven't read the print version. I switched to audio to save time. But I consider this audio book to be very good.
Think Big and Kick Ass by Donald Trump and Bill Zanker because it narrator was appropriate to the information.
A voice not as familiar as the one in my mind offering a fresh perspective.
Too many to put here briefly. But I love the authenticity. I resisted Carnegie's work for a long time because I assumed it was manipulative sales strategies.
I loved the real life explanations of how and why these strategies work. And they do!
Honestly everything! His voice was perfect for this book and made me feel like I was listening to a friend tell me a story.
This is a must read! It will help you with so many different aspects of your life. I applied it to school, work and even my children. We are all better off now.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to know how to be a better leader and to people that are being led by the usual leader.
I also think it teaches us a great way to communicate with people in business and in personal life too - like family and other loved ones.
Personally I find this book would not be as good in print for me. I can follow along easily and can think of ways that the lessons apply to me.
I have found bunches of great info here that I can apply in business and personal life.
I am going to recommend this book to my wife and some friends that I think could use a boost - I know they will all get something from it as I think anybody can.
There are advantages to listening to a book like this over reading it, like being able to read while driving. You are unable to mark important passages, but I find I read the book more times.
I have read the original How to win friends a number of times, and it has been a huge influence on my life. This has all of the same value as the original book, but includes suggestions on how to use the internet, and social media. Many of the examples are also updated, keeping it relevant.
No characters, this is an information book
The book is interesting, and it can be hard to stop once you get into it.
I have consistently encountered problems downloading books from audible to include this one. All their customer service is outsourced and I have lost patience trying to get a solution through the thick accents.
Don't know as it wouldn't download after multiple attempts.
Not from audible.com
