      "Excellent book"

      You can tell from the stories that this book was written many years ago but the message is still very useful. Even following a few of the suggestions put forth by this book could alter your life for the better. I will likely listen to this several times over the next few years to refresh the ideas. Highly recommended.

      "Pure Gold"

      I've listened to over 30 audio books. This is the best most practical book I've ever listened to. It works and it is not manipulation--pure gold.

      "Point of view"

      I am in public service for 14 years,after reading this book I realized that I had been using the practices in this book all this time. They work and my life and others were on the line when these methods worked. By listening to this book I continue to learn something new.

      "A must listen"

      Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is as relevant now (if not moreso) as when it was written. This is a compulsory text for anyone wanting to be successful in business and life.

      "The Greatest Self Help Book ever"

      I first read this book 38 years ago when I was 12, and I have read it again every couple of years just to remind myself of all the great ideas it contains. There have been many self help books written after this one, but none have come near to the depth of insight Dale Carnegie has to offer. II was glad to discover this audio version is of the original edition, not the revised edition that Carnegie's widow released a few years ago. Even though some of the examples are dated, I still love the original language, and references. Also, this is not just a "feel good" book--there are some deep insights into what makes people tick that are not always flattering, but always true. I owe Dale Carnegie a lifetime of thanks for teaching me how to get the best out of the people in my life, and from myself.

      "Time tested and a wonderful book"

      You can't argue with his approach. It helps to know a little bit about the world in the 30s and 40s, but even so you just cant argue with the straight forwardness and honesty of his principles. I read the book some 20 years ago, and found my mind wandering at times this time around, but all in all its a great book.

      "The power of appreciation!"

      This is a great book. It will increase your people skills and teach you to appreciate and be interested in other people. I have read other people skills books and found this one to be the most authentic. I do not want to be "fake" when dealing with people and this book does not teach you to be a flattering liar like some other books I have read. It was what I was looking for to improve my people skills.

      "Good advice"

      The advice contained in this book is different than that found in more recent "self-help" books and seminars. Carnegie stresses the importance of genuine caring for others, and just being good human beings. Carnegie was clearly a spiritual man.

      The more modern self-help gurus take on a more souless, selfish, and purely manipulative approach to getting what you want. That isn't what Carnegie is attempting to teach. Carnegie and his book are firm believers in the "win win" approach to dealing with others.

      One final comment: students of history will delight in Carnegie's various references to important figures of his time, including T. Roosevelt, Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, etc.

      "Life-Changing."
      What did you love best about How to Win Friends & Influence People?

      Wow! Everything in this book seems sotally obvious but these are the things we never think about - the book is presented in a way that really makes you think about how you treat people and why we react the ways we do. The tips and stories are SO GOOD. This book has changed my approach towards talking to people and frankly, has changed my life.

      Narrator is awesome, this is a great listen.

      "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.

      "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.

      "Everyone should listen!"

      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!

      "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?

      "Read every 10 years for an optimal life"

      I read this originally well over 30 years ago, and it is one of the books that has profoundly influenced my life. The essence is simply the golden rule: Do as to others as you would be done by. In a world where every one is (whether we like to admit it or not) out for themselves, it is still optimal to be loving and co-operative if you understand that life is essentially win-win: we gain ourselves by giving to others what they most want. And if they only give us back 80% of what they get, we are still both better off, because a lot of what we want (recognition, respect, affection) is FREE. So once this 'enlightened self-interest' gets a hold, out of the crooked stuff that man is made of, we find...we can all be happy! Read it, DC explains it better than I do.

      "Better than reading the book"

      I really enjoyed listening to this and managed to listen to it all in over a few weeks.

      The readers voice is warm and engaging and the advice went in.

      I enjoyed the book but definitely prefer the audio version.

      Highly recommend.

      "timeless advice"

      this book is timeless. it offers great insights and examples of human behaviour. the only criticsm would be that it mainly deals with office and business. otherwise a great suggestion from a friend

      "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.
