This book had caused a watershead paradigm shift in my perceptions and I'm eager to implement some of the relationship techniques I have learned from it. Truly priceless information so valuable I felt compelled to buy the hardcover as well.
Law Student/Warehouse Laborer. Dog Lover. Sports Enthusiast. I enjoy reading books on self improvement and business.
The book is easy to understand and read. It's a bit old fashioned but the principles still hold up. I think this is a good book to refer to whenever you don't know to how to deal with a person. The book is premised on treating others well, even those you disagree with. A definite must read for management and life in general.
This book is ridiculous. The only good thing he said was "don't hit your kids to get a result" Otherwise this book is about people suffering from NPD, describing it, encouraging it and creating it. And, we know why people go insane, it's called child abuse. Duh!! Childhood Trauma. Duh! Usually introverts pick up this book thinking they can join the extroverts. No. Read the book "Quiet" by Susan Cain who takes this book apart and gives it a butt hurt like no other. Read anything by Alice Miller. Read "They F*** you up" by Oliver James. Read Darien Leader. This book it utter nonsense and basically creates narcissists and praises them. Unbelievable. Obviously no one paid attention to the don't abuse your kid bit because the United States has a child abuse epidemic like no other. In fact, the BBC did a documentary on the USA.
No. That's not even his real name. He took it from Andrew Carnegie as in Carnegie hall.
The voice is awesome.
Anger and disappointment that it still exists.
Read "Delusions of Gender" That's probably one of the things wrong with you.
I absolutely loved this audio book, it had so many wise insights and practical applications. My only complaint is the narration. While very clear and annunciated, was somewhat droll and unanimated. overall though, a great experience!
This is now one of the greatest books on my shelf and will be read countless times.
This has improved my life(happiness and fulfillment) from the first word and the improved the relationships I have with people in my day to day life.
Read it now, for you will be mad for not have done so sooner.
Thanks for all the advice Dale
The most basic of people skills profoundly put with the evidence to support the skills put in practice. Must read for all people working with other people...which is all of us
Everyone will take something away that will benefit them in life. I intend to listen to this book again in a few years.
His voice fit the era in which the book was written. It really seemed as if the author was narrating.
If you want someone to do something for you, tell them how doing such a thing will benefit them. Don't just ask for a favor, make the person want to do it. Examples are very helpful.
People from all walks of life and stages of life should listen to this. It is common sense that we all need to hear. The first time I tried one of the suggestions in the book I was successful in my goal.
